A new Colorado Mountain College scholarship will allow around 200 students to attend the school without paying tuition starting in the fall.
The scholarship program, which is called Colorado Mountain Promise, is intended for students who cannot cover tuition costs even after receiving some financial aid. The scholarship uses a combination of federal, state and institutional funds to pay the remaining costs of tuition after students use other scholarships or financial aid, like the Pell Grant, Colorado Student Grant or Colorado Opportunity Initiative, according to a news release.
The scholarship applies to any Colorado resident enrolled in at least six credits at any Colorado Mountain College location. Applicants must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or the Colorado Application for State Financial Aid to apply.
Families with students who are still qualified as dependents must have a total household income of less than $70,000. Families with students who are independent must have a total household income less than $50,000.
The program is expected to help 200 students.
Students can begin the application process by visiting ColoradoMtn.edu, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 970-947-8322.
