Reporting private scholarships

Congratulations on receiving a scholarship! Please report any scholarships not awarded by CU Boulder through your student portal as soon as possible. If you are receiving a multi-year award, only report the amount that you are receiving for the coming academic year. If you receive a scholarship payment directly, you are obliged to notify us. Reported scholarships will show on your financial aid status as anticipated private scholarships. The anticipated amounts will be adjusted once CU Boulder receives the scholarship payment.

Mailing payments

Mail scholarship checks to:

University of Colorado Boulder
Scholarship Services
77 UCB
Boulder, CO 80309-0077

Ask your donors to mail scholarship checks at least one month prior to the tuition due date so that you can avoid incurring late & finance charges. Our office must receive your scholarship check by 5 p.m. on the first day of classes to guarantee no late fees. You may provide your donor your student ID and the Scholarship Donor form to include with the scholarship check to expedite processing.

We encourage you to write thank you notes to your scholarship donor(s). Expressing appreciation to donors for their interest in and support of higher education is an important part of receiving a scholarship.
