Our Opportunities

Welcome to the MSU Denver Scholarship Application!

Please log in using your MSU Denver NetID username and password.

Please complete the General Application. You may save your application at any time by clicking Save and Keep Editing at the bottom of the form. After you complete and submit your General Application, you will be matched with scholarships for which you meet the minimum eligibility criteria.

Browsing “All” Scholarships: To view a list of all scholarship opportunities, you may click “All” under “*Opportunities”* above. This list shows all scholarships, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration. Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column – this means an additional application is not required for consideration. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.

Important: Scholarships with the word “Apply” to their right (after you sign in) require further action on your part in order to be considered. Click “Apply” for details and complete the requirements if you are eligible for the scholarship.
