The Malcom Erickson Scholarship is designed to encourage Trinidad High School graduates to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by a college education at the University of Colorado. Applicants must be graduates of Trinidad High School, demonstrate superior scholastic achievement, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and be admitted to an undergraduate degree-seeking program. Preference will be given to applicants demonstrating financial need according to the FAFSA. Similar awards are offered at both CU Denver and CU Boulder through separate application processes. This UCCS scholarship is renewable for up to four years if students maintain full-time enrollment, a GPA of at least a 2.0, and Satisfactory Academic Progress. The total award over a four-year period is $28,000.
Recipients will be notified of scholarship results in April.
