WCCF Scholarships


Our Community Foundation offers 38 different scholarships established by generous donors who believe in the importance of education and the future of the next generation. Our scholarships are as varied as Colorado’s landscape. Each scholarship has specific criteria that reflect the ideals and preferences of the founding donor(s). Most of our scholarships are for graduating high school seniors; others are for adults returning to school. Scholarships are granted for use at accredited colleges, universities, and vocational schools.

Our online Common Scholarship Application will guide students through the process and recommend scholarships based on the students’ responses. Students will be asked to create a personal login account. For ease of use, the application allows students to save their work and return to the application later, as needed.
