CU offers generous scholarships up to $64,000 and reasonable tuition fees
The cost of a college education is a significant investment, and we provide the financial resources to make it possible. Merit-based freshman scholarships for up to half off tuition ($16,000 USD/year) are available. The scholarship is renewable for up to 4 years, so up to $64,000 total. The eligibility is based on high school GPA and scholarship essays. GPA requirements vary per award, in the range from 3.2-3.7 on the US scale (8-10 on the Vietnamese scale). A higher GPA qualifies you for a larger scholarship. Additionally, CU Denver is offering a $5,000 scholarship for students enrolled in online and remote courses in the Fall 2020 semester.
Vy Nguyen Tuong Vo said that receiving two scholarships, “made me feel welcomed to the university and that my efforts were recognized.” Students can also apply for program specific and external scholarships.
