2020-2021 Merit Scholarship Renewal Update: 

The College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) will be relaxing scholarship renewal criteria after the semester at the end of the academic year. Note this is for CEAS scholarships only. You should email scholarships@colorado.edu for any questions related to campus-level scholarships you may be receiving, and/or contact any external scholarship sponsor/provider directly for questions about any non-university scholarships. 

The CEAS scholarship renewal criteria listed here will be in place for this renewal period only:

  •       The number of completed credit hours required for renewal has been reduced from 24 to 12 credit hours (i.e., if you completed 12 CU Boulder credit hours between the fall 2020 and/or spring 2021 semesters you meet this requirement.
  •       Students must be enrolled in at least 6 credits per semester. Students enrolled in less than 12 credits during the fall or spring semester will receive their scholarship at a prorated amount.
