The Western Presidential Scholars Award is a full-tuition scholarship available to Valedictorians of Colorado high schools. The scholarship is renewable for four years or eight consecutive semesters and will cover full in-state tuition charges after the COF stipend is applied. The Western Presidential Scholars Award would replace any other merit scholarship that may have already been awarded. The Western Presidential Scholars Award is a competitive scholarship as there are a limited number of awards available each year.
To apply students must submit a letter of application, one letter of recommendation, and provide verification of Valedictorian status to the Financial Aid Office. Completed applications must be received by April 1, of each year.
