The CU Parents Association (CUPA) promotes and assists in the administration of several valuable programs that enhance the education for our students. These programs include the promotion, review, and awarding of:
- Scholarships for continuing and transfer students.
- Marinus Smith Award recognizing faculty and staff
- CU Proud Award recognizing student actions and achievement beyond the norm
The funds to support these annual programs come from parent donations made to the Parent Fund. The CUPA grant program has been discontinued. Student groups looking for funding from other available sources should review the Student Organization Financial Office (SOFO) website at http://sofo.colorado.edu/ or call SOFO at 303-492-6366.
Programming and outreach by CUPA members includes volunteering on behalf of the University of Colorado Boulder for events and receptions on campus and in their hometown. Whatever your level of commitment, we know that all parents are involved with their students and we are here to partner with you in that effort.
I want to thank the scholarship committee again for helping me fund my education and I am deeply appreciative of this assistance in helping me to get to where I am now! I could not have been so successful without the help of organizations like yours that help students face the huge financial obligations of college.
