CU Provides Extra Cash For Students To Finish Degree

In our Spotlight Series we like to bring attention to colleges, universities, and organizations that are making a difference in the lives of students and families that are navigating the financial aspect of higher education. Today’s Spotlight is shining upon the University of Colorado.

In an effort to help boost degree completion for students that once attended CU but for some reason or the other did not finish their degree requirements, Colorado University is offering scholarship assistance to get them back on track.

The University is sending out letters to over 500 students that pre-qualify for this scholarship program and is offering $500 and $1000 scholarships for anyone that takes them up on returning to CU. Students that take between one and eight credit hours are eligible for $500 and any accepted student taking over 9 credit hours gets $1000. The University has set aside $50,000 for this scholarship program.

Eligibility for the scholarship program is reserved for students that have at least a 2.0 GPA and the greatest consideration is given to students over the age of 25 who have already completed 60 or more credit hours.

Hopefully their initiative can serve as a good example for other colleges.
