Scholarships & Financial Aid
The GPCW is deeply committed to raising funds to support our students. Each year we offer substantial direct-funding scholarships of up to $5,000/yr., depending on available funding.
Students will be invited to fill out the program’s scholarship application upon being admitted to the program. Please note that, if awarded a scholarship, it is not refundable once you register for courses. Should you withdraw from the program or fall below full-time enrollment, your scholarship will be forfeited.
Students in good standing may apply for Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan, which is available for up to $20,500 for each year of attendance. Students may also qualify for Direct PLUS Loans to help with other college costs not covered by Direct Unsubsidized Loans. Incoming students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA form for both the current and the coming financial aid year upon being admitted.
Graduate students are NOT eligible for the Colorado Opportunity Fund (COF).
Students who wish to attend part-time, or who need to take a reduced course load for a semester, may do so and retain their financial aid, as long as they enroll in a minimum of 4.5 credit hours for any semester of attendance.
