Nontraditional Student Scholarship

Continuing Education offers a Nontraditional Student Scholarship for the fall and spring semesters. The maximum award for the scholarship is 80% of the tuition rate of a three-credit course, with a maximum of $1,000. Students may be awarded the scholarship only once during their time as a nondegree student. The award amount is based on available funding and a competitive essay review. The Spring 2017 application deadline is January 27, 2017 and the Summer 2017 application deadline is May 26, 2017.

Eligible students must be:

  1. Nondegree seeking (not formally admitted to a CU degree program)
  2. Enrolled in courses offered via ACCESS, Boulder Evening Credit, Online Credit, the International English Center, or Applied Music.

Application and Award Process

  • Along with the application, include a typewritten essay of at least 250 words addressing your past educational history; your future goals; and the way in which the scholarship will assist you in meeting those goals.
  • Awardees will be notified via the email given on the application.
