The Sharer Scholars Program is a scholarship offered to newly admitted resident transfer students who are transferring to CU Boulder in Fall 2022 from a Colorado college or university and plan to graduate within two years.

The scholarship donors believe transfer students with grit, talent, motivation and drive can succeed at CU Boulder and that financial need should not be a barrier to success. The Sharer Scholars Program for transfer students will provide talented students with the financial, social and emotional support needed to successfully complete their degrees and prepare for careers after graduation.
