Carl and Linda Gardner Endowed Scholarship

This scholarship fund is to provide financial assistance to deserving students, with primary consideration given to students who have been accepted into the Epic Program (or any future iterations of this program) at Metropolitan State University of Denver.

• Be meeting MSU Denver’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements and cannot be in default or owe any refund/repayment of federal, state or institutional aid
• Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or greater
• Be designated as emancipated out of foster youth, kinship care, orphan or ward of the court
• Be enrolled at least part-time during the semesters the scholarship is received.

Preference is given to students with financial need as determined by FAFSA and the MSU Denver Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.

The Donors wish to have all scholarship recipients automatically renew in consecutive years, should the student(s) remain eligible under the existing selection criteria. This provision is only applicable when funds are available from endowment distributions or gifts directed to the scholarship award account.

Supplemental Questions
