About Our Scholars

About the scholars

The Curiosity Unlimited Scholars are full-time undergraduates who will enter their senior year in the fall. Students must have a 3.3 cumulative GPA and at least 30 UCCS credit hours. Students must demonstrate financial need by completing the FAFSA. Four to six awards are typically made per year.

What compels us to fund scholarships

Frequently, by the time students reach their final year in college, they have expended their savings as well as any money that may have been put aside for them by their families. They are so close to finishing, yet are faced with demoralizing circumstances of low income, over work and fatigue, and mounting student loan debt. The purpose of the Curiosity Unlimited Scholarship Fund is to provide students entering their senior year with incentive, additional funding, and encouragement to stay the course to graduation.

The Legacy

Although most of us who attend Curiosity Unlimited don't consider ourselves to be "the new generation", in this organization we really are the new generation.  We've lost a few generous members in the past few years. It's up to us now to pick up the mantle from those who have gone before us, to help fund Curiosity Unlimited scholarships, so that those young people who come after us will be well prepared to take on the responsibilities we expect of them. We need to invest in them today, so we can depend on them tomorrow.
