Rent and Mortgage Scholarship Program

We believe that affordable housing is vital to student success. SPARC’s Housing Scholarship Program recipients are eligible for a one-time scholarship for students to use towards their housing costs. Scholarship recipients will work closely with one of our Human Services staff members to continue to support them in succeeding at the Community College of Denver. We encourage any students interested in reviewing our scholarship program to complete the application in its entirety. Incomplete applications will be automatically denied. If you need support in completing the application or if you have any questions about the application, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
