Please note that students offered CU Engineering Boettcher Semi-finalist Scholarships and GoldShirt Scholarships are not eligible for a BOLD Participation Scholarship. BOLD Participation Scholarships may be layered on top of most other scholarships through CU Engineering.
BOLD offers participation scholarships of up to $16,000.
BOLD’s purpose is to break down the barriers that keep too many of today’s young talent from reaching their aspirations, and help students realize their full potential as engineers… creative problem-solvers ready to shape the future! BOLD gears it’s activities around students under-represented nationwide in engineering colleges, including first generation college-bound, women, under-represented minority and low-income students. However, BOLD Participation Scholarships are available to any student who supports the BOLD Center mission and wishes to contribute to the CU-Engineering community through BOLD.
