Student Support Programs

The Denver Scholarship Foundation wants every college student to successfully complete a college degree or certificate. Below are some helpful resources and programs available at CU Boulder.

  • TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) –  a comprehensive and holistic academic excellence program to cultivate each student’s sense of community, achievement, and leadership, while valuing their individuality and unique needs.  TRIO SSS strives to maximize student involvement, and success in CU’s academic community through mentorship, academic programs, and one-on-one counseling.
  • CU LEAD Alliance – a unique set of academic learning communities whose students, faculty and staff are united to promote inclusive excellence. These “academic neighborhoods” build camaraderie and promote student success during the first-year and throughout students’ four years through a rich array of cohort experiences, participation scholarships, academic enrichment activities, and community-building activities.

Summer Bridge Programs

  • ASPIRE (Achieving Student Performance, Interest and Retention in Engineering) Summer Bridge is an intensive residential academic engineering program for incoming first-year students admitted to the College of Engineering and Applied Science during the summer before their first year of college.
    • Application Deadline: May 15, 2017
  • Engineering GoldShirt Program supports motivated and talented students who need additional math, science, or humanities preparation before diving into the full undergraduate engineering curriculum. First-year course work focuses on enhancing student preparation for success in their chosen engineering major. Provides mentoring, academic, and social support for all Engineering GoldShirt students. Leadership and personal development training are part of the unique Engineering GoldShirt curriculum.
    • No application – CU Boulder identifies eligible students and notifies if selected.
