SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS
The CWBA Foundation provides an annual scholarship to a law student at both the University of Colorado School of Law and the University of Denver Sturm College of Law who best exemplifies our mission. Previously, the scholarship was $2,500 per year. However, for the five-year period 2016 through 2020, the scholarship amount may vary year to year as we fund an endowed scholarship at each law school. For years 2021 and beyond, it is our goal to fund each scholarship at a $5,000 level or above.
In September of 2019, the CWBA Foundation agreed to a partnership with the Community College of Denver Foundation to begin a Paralegal Scholarship Fund. This annual scholarship will award $1,500 to a female paralegal student who are working towards success both in their personal and professional lives.
