Colorado Student Grant
Based on financial need, the Colorado Graduate Grant is sponsored by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education. Awarding a maximum of $5,000, these grants do a big part in helping Colorado college students afford their tuition and can be applied for through a specific state university.

Dependents Tuition Assistance Program
Funds from this program will cover not only tuition, but also on-campus room and board at the Colorado college of the recipient’s choice.
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.
