Scholarships

Forever Buffs comes to life through the Alumni Association scholarship program. Thanks to the generous support and fundraising efforts from our Buff chapters across the country and the Directors Club that partner with the Alumni Association, we are able to award student scholarships every year. Contribution is one of the cornerstones of Forever Buffs and our alumni are excited to support students to ensure undergraduates have the same positive CU-Boulder experience.
