Scholarships & Funding

Scholarships are financial awards that do not have to be paid back. Applications typically happen in the spring for the following academic year. Scholarships may be awarded based on a variety of criteria including financial need and academic performance.

Selected Scholarships

Incoming graduate students are eligible for the CAP Opportunity Scholarship. The University of Colorado Denver and the College of Architecture and Planning recognize that a diverse student body benefits and enriches the educational experiences of all students, faculty, and staff. We strive to recruit students who will further enrich this diversity and make every attempt to support their academic and personal success while they are here.
