World Within Your Reach Summer Scholarship

Must have an active application for a CU Denver Global Study program taking place during the same term as the scholarship application. If you do not have an application for study abroad, please contact

The University of Colorado Denver’s Office of Global Education (OGE) is pleased to offer a limited number of full-ride scholarships to CU Denver | Anschutz students pursuing one of our many short-term Global Study programs that take place each Winter and Summer. This scholarship covers the full study abroad program fee (including tuition), round-trip international airfare, and passport and visa fees. Additional expenses related to a short-term study abroad experience include some meals, spending money, pre-trip medical expenses, books and supplies. Existing financial aid can be used to cover these additional expenses.

OGE strongly believes in the long-lasting, positive value of education abroad in broadening personal and academic perspectives. We hope that this scholarship helps bring study abroad within the reach of more CU Denver | Anschutz students.
