The Community Foundation is honored to work with donors who make an impact on the lives of students from Northern Colorado and the Eastern Plains through scholarship funds established at the Foundation. Scholarship opportunities range from $1,000 to $5,000.

In recent years, scholarships have been distributed to a wide variety of schools, including Aims Community College, Arizona State University, Colorado State University, Creighton University, Dartmouth College, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Fort Lewis College, Front Range Community College, King’s College New York, Northeastern Junior College, University of Colorado at Boulder, University of Colorado at Denver, University of Northern Colorado, and University of Wyoming.

The application process is simple. Students are invited to 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 for each opportunity.

If you have questions or are interested in volunteering to review scholarship applications, contact our scholarship team at [email protected].
