Aims Community College is offering scholarships for both current and new students for the Spring 2022 semester. Based on the success of previous offerings designed to support students in the wake of COVID-19, the scholarships are available to Colorado residents who live within the Aims tax district. 

“These new scholarships were created to assist our current students so they can finish their programs, and for new students to get assistance to be able to start their educational journey,” said Chris Peterson, executive director of Financial Aid at Aims. “The amount covers over six credits of tuition for in-district students in most liberal arts degrees. We hope these scholarships will help students succeed in their educational goals.” he said.

Aims Persisting Scholarship - For Continuing Students

The Aims Persisting Scholarship is a $500 one-time scholarship award for students who are continuing their education at Aims. No application is required for the scholarship, but to qualify, students must meet four criteria. First, students must meet in-district requirements for classification tuition purposes, meaning they must be a Colorado resident for a minimum of one year and live in the Aims tax district. Second, they must be enrolled at Aims full-time (earning 12 or more credits). Third, students must be pursuing a degree or certificate, and finally, they must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. 

Aims Now Scholarship - For New Students

The Aims Now Scholarship is a $500 one-time scholarship award for new and transfer students, as well as previous high school concurrently enrolled students. The qualification requirements are the same as those for the Aims Persisting Scholarship, minus the GPA specification. Students must be classified as in-district for classification tuition purposes (Colorado residency for a minimum of one year and live within the Aims tax district), enrolled full-time (12 or more credits) and be seeking a degree or certificate.
