College Opportunity Fund

The College Opportunity Fund is funded by the Colorado General Assembly and pays a portion of tuition for students enrolled for eligible undergraduate classes. Based on a per credit basis, the stipend equals around $62.00 per credit (this rate is set annually). Therefore, if a student takes 15 credit hours per semester, the stipend will be approximately $1,860 for the year at public universities. For students enrolled in private colleges, half that amount will be awarded.
