Four current students in CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies will be awarded Boundless Opportunity Scholarships. The scholarship application will be open from April 1-16, 2019.

Scholarship for Adult Students

CCU’s College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS) has been awarded a Boundless Opportunity Scholarship (BOS) grant from the Daniels Fund. The BOS grant is designed to benefit motivated non-traditional students who recognize the power of education to create a better life for themselves and their families.

These scholarships are specifically targeted to help students who are adult learners, including individuals who are returning to college; GED (General Education Diploma) recipients; former foster care youth; former juvenile justice youth; and those pursuing an Early Childhood Education degree. Applicants must be currently enrolled and a legal resident of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, or Wyoming.

CCU recognizes that adult learners have limited opportunities for scholarships and financial assistance and often incur additional expenses from online course fees, child care, and elder care.

Boundless Opportunity Scholarship Criteria

Three $4,000 Boundless Opportunity Scholarships and one $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to adult undergraduate students in CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies who meet the scholarship criteria. The BOS application will be open to current CAGS students from April 1-16, 2019 and includes several essay questions. To access the application, log into Blackboard, then click on the Student Resources tab. Selected recipients will be notified by April 30, 2019.
