The Community Foundation provides students with an easy way to search and apply to our scholarships, which are made possible by our generous donors. The 2016-2017 scholarship application cycle is now closed.

We offer a wide variety of scholarship opportunities. For example, some awards are based on financial need and others target academic achievement. Some opportunities are available only to students who attend a specific school or live within a specific geographic location. We make the application process easy and efficient. Students can complete one brief general application that will automatically match them to the scholarship awards for which they qualify; they can then complete any supplemental information required. To view a summary of our scholarship funds, click here.

We are honored to work with donors who have made an impact on the lives of students from Northern Colorado to the Eastern Plain through scholarship funds established at the Community Foundation.
