Scholarships

Scholarships open to undergraduate and graduate students

Sister-to-Sister Scholarship Opportunity
In the fall of 1998, the alumnae of the Colorado School of Mines gathered to celebrate 100 years of women at Mines at The Florence Caldwell Centennial Celebration. As an outgrowth of this Celebration, women developed a scholarship program sponsored and supported by alumni and friends of Mines. In 2000, the Sister-to-Sister Scholarship Program began awarding an annual scholarship to a current Mines female student.

National Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Scholarships
SWE Scholarships support women pursuing ABET-accredited bachelor or graduate student programs in preparation for careers in engineering, engineering technology and computer science in the United States.

Florence Caldwell Achievement Scholarship Program
The Florence Caldwell Achievement Scholarship Program awards are sponsored by Mines, in cooperation with the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce, to three incoming first-year students at Mines each year.

Prospective Students:
Your application for admission serves as your application for scholarships. There is no separate scholarship application, though it could be helpful to include a resume or personal statement with the admission application.

Current Students:
Students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents are considered for Mines scholarships. Most scholarships require a student to pass a minimum of 24 credits each academic year (fall plus spring semesters) with a 2.5 or higher cumulative GPA.
