Colorado State is committed to increasing attendance and retention for students admitted from Alliance high schools who choose to attend Colorado State and to ensure they are successful at the University. A key component of this commitment is the Alliance Award.
Alliance Partnership Award for High School Students
Students from Alliance Partnership High Schools will receive a base award of $2,500 per academic year and may receive an increased award, up to the amount of Colorado resident tuition and fees, based on the student's documented financial need. This commitment to each student will continue for up to four years provided the student maintains satisfactory academic progress.
Alliance Partnership Award for Transfer Students
A companion award is also available for Alliance high school graduates who attend a public Colorado community/junior college prior to transferring to Colorado State University. Qualified students will receive a base award of $2,500 per academic year (for up to four years) and may receive an increased award, up to the amount of Colorado resident tuition and fees, based on the student’s documented financial need.
The Alliance Transfer Award will be available to qualified students. To be eligible, Alliance High School graduates must:
- enroll at the community/junior college within nine months after high school graduation
- be classified as a Colorado resident for tuition classification purposes
- gain admission to Colorado State University as a transfer student
Students who, after graduation from high school, enroll at any other four year institution or out-of-state community college, are not eligible for this award.
Students must have submitted their completed Application for Admission to the University by December 1st for Spring Semester enrollment and by March 1st for Fall Semester in order to receive the award.
