NSPA Member Highlights

University of Colorado Boulder

β€œIt is an honor for the University of Colorado Boulder Guardian Scholars Program to be recognized as the 2013 NSPA Scholarship Provider of the Year. From creating unique learning opportunities at national conferences, to offering webinars and weekly updates to stay current on scholarship trends, NSPA is a valuable resource for effective scholarship management. CU-Boulder is proud to be an NSPA member organization, and we are grateful for the breadth of scholarship opportunities available to our students.” – Barbara Marshall, Scholarship Coordinator

CU-Boulder develops academic and residential programs with the intent of helping students connect with a smaller, close-knit community within the larger university. The Guardian Scholars Program supports a talented group of former foster care students with the financial and emotional support needed to achieve personal and professional goals. Many individuals and organizations contribute to the success of this program.

Guardian Scholars benefit from a broad range of services and experiences that better prepare them to succeed in a rigorous academic environment, a dream that many never considered possible. Graduates from the Guardian Scholars Program join a group of community leaders who are outstanding representatives of CU-Boulder, empowered to make a difference in their chosen field.
