The CU LEAD Alliance is a unique set of academic learning communities whose students, faculty and staff are united to promote inclusive excellence. These “academic neighborhoods” build camaraderie and promote student success during the first-year and throughout students’ four years through a rich array of: 1) cohort experiences, 2) participation scholarships, 3) academic enrichment activities, and 4) community-building activities.

CU-LEAD Scholarships are aimed at recruiting a diverse student body. LEAD (Leadership, Excellence, Achievement, Diversity) scholars will participate in a program designed to promote academic excellence at the University of Colorado Boulder. CU Faculty and Staff may give via payroll deduction. More information here.
