Current Scholarship Recipients

LAEF Welcomes 2021-2022 Scholars
 
LAEF is proud to award scholarship funds to more than 100 students, including 34 first-time scholarship recipients and 67 renewing scholars. Meet LAEF's new scholars and learn a little more about where they come from and where they will be attending college this fall. These students will be our future leaders! We were impressed with our scholars' accomplishments. On average these recipients have a 3.74 GPA and 95% of them are first-generation college students. Welcome to the LAEF family!
 
LAEF is committed in providing the necessary resources for our students, ensuring that our scholars have the financial support along with the wrap around services they need to continue their education and ultimately graduate. Each student will receive upwards of $10,000 over the
next five-years towards their education, and with our matching partnership agreements we have with our Colorado colleges and universities, these students will receive up to $20,000 of scholarship support. LAEF is thrilled to support Colorado's brightest scholars!
 
We are thankful for all of our community partners and friends for continuing to support our scholars and ask you to join us as we congratulate our scholars.
