Colorado Energy Scholars

Recognizing Colorado's most outstanding energy student.


In partnership with West Slope Colorado Oil & Gas Association, The Colorado Mesa University Foundation created a new endowment that will provide an annual scholarship award to Colorado's most outstanding student pursuing a future career in Western Colorado's diverse energy industries.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible for the scholarship award, a Colorado student must demonstrate through essay, extracurricular activities and academic performance the skills necessary to become a high performing future energy professional. A student needn't be enrolled to apply for the scholarship but the scholarship applies only to CMU programs. Campus energy related programs include Landman/energy management, mechanical engineering, environmental science, geology, machining, welding or process systems technology.

What benefits does the scholarship provide?

The scholarship will be awarded to a full-time student pursuing a degree in an energy related field who is attending or planning to attend Colorado Mesa University. The award amount will cover the cost of tuition and fees for the student selected. The award will be presented each year at the West Slope Colorado Oil & Gas Association Annual Banquet in February hosted by Colorado Mesa University.
