Scholarship Opportunities

The Colorado Educational Opportunity Scholarship (New America School students only)

Each year, the New America School awards up to five outstanding New America School graduating seniors the Colorado Educational Opportunity Scholarship. This award, made possible through the generosity of the Polis-Schutz Family Foundation and other private donors, provides students with up to $2,500 per year for five years to pursue post-secondary education or training.

NAS students seeking to apply for the Colorado Educational Opportunity Scholarship should contact their guidance counselor during March of the school year.

Support Scholarships for New America School Students

When you contribute to Colorado Educational Opportunity Scholarship you are investing in the future of deserving, but financially in-need students. For most NAS students, the scholarship means the difference between whether they are or are not able to attend post-secondary education. Your gift will enable student like Hatungimana Renath to pursue their American dream.

To support the Colorado Educational Opportunity Scholarship, please contact David Rein for additional information. We invite you to tour a campus meet some of the students whose lives you can help improve.
