Our Opportunities

To view opportunities available through the CU Boulder Scholarship Application click on “Opportunities” and then select “Ours.”  Most scholarships have a deadline of February 15.

You must log in to MyCUInfo to apply for CU Boulder (i.e. “Ours”) scholarship opportunities. Click here for information on applying.


Tips for Your Search:
• “Show Filters” allows you to select scholarship opportunities offered by CU Boulder schools, colleges, departments and programs.
• Use “Search by Keyword” to find scholarships with a specific name or specific criteria. Examples include: “financial need”, “merit”, “freshmen”, “Colorado resident”.
• Clicking on “External” under “Opportunities” filters for outside scholarship opportunities unaffiliated with CU Boulder with links to the scholarship provider’s website.  We do not endorse any of these opportunities.  We provide this information to you as a resource; exercise your best judgment in researching scholarship opportunities.

If you have any questions about the scholarship application process, please email scholarships@colorado.edu.
