WBO Scholarship Information

Through the generous contributions of the Chris Mikesell Foundation, Western State Colorado University is able to offer scholarships to WBO participants.  We realize the important role that WBO courses can play in the lives of incoming students and we know that some students may be deterred from attending a WBO course due to the financial burden it may place on the family. To successfully tend to these needs, WBO scholarship opportunities are available to students who exemplify the values of WBO and have financial need.

All you need to do is fill it out a WBO scholarship application and return it to the WBO Office by July 1st. The scholarship committee will review the applications and notify applicants of rewards offered by July 15th.
