Established through an estate gift from Bill Hemingway, a longtime employee of The Denver Post, the DAPS scholarship award is an automatic consideration award for incoming first-year students from a small group of Denver metro high schools. If you are offered this award, you will hear about it through communication about your financial aid package.

This amount is in addition to any other funding you may have learned about from CU Boulder and CMCI thus far. To find out more information, please contact Shelby Javernick
