The Displaced Aurarian Scholarship program is designed to provide funds for up to 15 credit hours for standard in-state tuition and fees minus COF for regular classes taught at the downtown Auraria Campus for a maximum of eight semesters to students who were residents of the Auraria neighborhood at the time the campus was first built, between 1955 and 1973. The program also extends to the children and grandchildren of these residents. Students who plan on transferring to a four-year institution on the Auraria Campus need to contact that institution to see if they meet the criteria for the Displaced Aurarian Scholarship at another school.
The Displaced Aurarian (DA) Scholarship will be awarded after Census Date (approximately 2 weeks after classes begin) every Fall and Spring semester. This is not guaranteed and solely dependent on the availability of funds. Submission of the DA application in no way guarantees a Displaced Aurarian Award at CCD at any point. There may be no DA scholarship available in summer.
