In 2014, the CU Denver Department of Communication and the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (CLAS) became the fifth Colorado school to partner with the Puksta Foundation to help CU Denver students give back to their communities while receiving a scholarship to help with tuition. Expanded in 2015 to include the Department of Ethnic Studies, the Puksta Foundation and CLAS now sponsor $2,500 scholarships for ten Puksta Scholars a year. Our Puksta Scholars work on community projects of their choosing while completing complementary academic and leadership training. Learn more about this program and our current scholars here
