Denver Scholarship Foundation is making an impact on our community. We’ve changed expectations for students in Denver. No matter their background or financial situation, students and their families now understand that college is possible. Fueled by the achievements of our amazing graduates, we’re more committed than ever to make college possible for Denver students. Our annual gala will celebrate our accomplishments through an evening of thought-provoking discussion, inspiring student interaction, and entertainment.

Make a difference today by providing equal access to college, and a pathway into Colorado’s workforce for Denver’s low income students.
