Scholarships in the Environmental Studies Program are awarded to students declared in the major who meet the following criteria: (1) enrolled full-time as an undergraduate major in Environmental Studies, (2) demonstrate a commitment to the Environmental Studies program, and (3) have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. ENVS will place an emphasis on applications from students who demonstrate a passion for public service, community engagement, scholarship in the public good, or other forms of civic engagement. In order to apply, students should submit the CU Boulder Scholarship application and complete the supplemental question. Some scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need and/or strong academic performance and in the case of equal qualifications, financial means will be a consideration.

Students who apply will be considered for the Wickholm Scholarship ($1,500), the Gibson Scholarship (need-based scholarship of $500-$1,500) and the ENVS Scholarship ($500 – $1,500).
