Vital info to share with students
MSU Denver’s scholarship-priority deadline is approaching.
February 24, 2021
Metropolitan State University of Denver’s 2021-22 Scholarship Application is now open. The priority deadline is March 1.
Students often apply for a scholarship only because they were encouraged by faculty or staff. Your Teams chat, email inquiry or Canvas reminder will likely be the reason a student chooses to submit their scholarship application, and they may even be awarded.
Please share these scholarship opportunities and resources with students.
