Students selected for the Outstanding Colorado Student Award will receive a $4,000 scholarship ($1,000 per year), which will be automatically added to their financial aid package if they are admitted to and enroll at CU Boulder. Outstanding Colorado Student Award recipients and their families will also be invited to a special reception and visit program on the CU Boulder campus, where they will be introduced to numerous opportunities available to CU Boulder’s top students. Finally, as a special offer of congratulations, we will waive the admission application fee for these students.

  • A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.8 (weighted or unweighted) is required for award selection.
  • One student from each Colorado high school may be selected. Multiple nominations will not be accepted.

  • Student must be a Colorado resident.

We hope you will collaborate with your colleagues, who may also have been invited to submit nominations, to nominate your school’s Outstanding Colorado Student.
