Grants and Fellowships
There are exciting opportunities for all students at CC, but a student's biggest hindrance is often learning about them too late to adequately plan and prepare. Don't let this happen to you! Do some initial research on this page to determine the opportunities that interest you and for which you are eligible. Once you know what you want, you can contact on-campus advisers for the next step. It is never too early to begin thinking about these options - an early start can give you a significant advantage.
There are dozens of external scholarships & fellowships available to Colorado College students and graduates. Learn about some of them here! Becoming aware of the variety of opportunities available is the most important step you can take – and the earlier, the better. The most competitive opportunities require thoughtful planning over several months, so the sooner you learn about them, the more likely you are to develop a competitive proposal.
Below are two documents that detail some of the most well-known opportunities.
- Opportunities for First-Years and Sophomores
- Opportunities for Upperclassmen, Graduating Seniors and Recent Graduates
If you are interested in narrowing your search by reviewing opportunities in certain fields and disciplines, please review your Opportunities Organized by Division. Please keep in mind that being competitive for the most prestigious post-graduate fellowships can require beginning preparation as early as the sophomore year.
