Currently six Colorado public universities partner with the Reisher Scholars Program. Students who have completed their freshman year at a partner university or who are transferring into one of the universities from community colleges for their junior year may apply. Applicants must meet a variety of eligibility requirements, including a G.P.A. of 3.0 or better, demonstrated financial need and involvement in service activities.
Reisher Scholar awards are full unmet need scholarships and now range from $4,000 to $11,000 per year. From 2001 to 2015, over 1,000 students from a wide variety of backgrounds have received Reisher support, with a total of $15.7 million in scholarships. The Reisher Scholars Program continues to grow, expanding its reach and impact to help Colorado college students reach their goals.
