SCHOLARSHIPS & FINANCIAL AID
Thanks to the generosity of donors, Conservation Leadership awards partial scholarships to a number of incoming Conservation Leadership students in most years. These amounts vary year to year, depending on contributions to the scholarship fund and other factors. Scholarships are usually in the range of $1500 to $5000.
Paul D. Coverdell Peace Corps Fellows Program
This fellowship is in partnership with the United States Peace Corps. To be eligible, a student must be a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) and submit their Description of Service (DOS) with their application. This fellowship opportunity offers financial assistance and allows fellows to develop new skills in conservation disciplines through instruction, field-work and research which values cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary perspectives. Returned Peace Corps Volunteers are eligible for the Coverdell Fellowship, which amounts to a 33% discount on tuition for the Fall and Spring semesters (note: the discount does not apply to Summer tuition and is awarded up to three applicants).

Conservation Leadership will also award $1,500 scholarships for up to three Americorps volunteers.
Scholarship and assistantship selections are based on information in the Conservation Leadership applications. Students do not need to do anything additional to be considered for a Conservation Leadership scholarship or assistantship that is awarded by the Conservation Leadership program. However, CSU has other scholarship and financial aid programs, which require additional materials:
- Student Financial Services at Colorado State University: Information about CSU scholarships and other financial aid.
- Warner College of Natural Resources Scholarships: WCNR awards scholarships of varying amounts to WCNR students. Applicants will be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible by completing one application. Deadline to apply is March 1. Students intending to enroll in Conservation Leadership in the Fall are encouraged to apply!
- Colorado State University Scholarships: The CSUSA is an online scholarship application for many of the scholarships at CSU.
