Finish What You Start is a new grant-funded scholarship through the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative that helps Colorado residents go back to school and earn their credential or degree. The program supports returning students by providing both financial assistance and support services throughout their college experience to help students successfully finish their academic program.
The program combines scholarships as well as additional funding and supports - such as career planning, academic coaching, , financial literacy, career services, and public resources (e.g., transportation assistance, childcare centers, legal aid services, housing support, etc.) among others. Each aid packet is customized to your individual needs.
