Presidential Scholar Award Goes To Two Outstanding International Students
The Presidential Scholar Award was developed by former University of Colorado Denver President Hank Brown to identify and recognize outstanding students in the freshman class. Award recipients receive $2,500 USD toward tuition that recurs for eight (8) semesters, totaling $20,000 USD. They must maintain a 3.2/4.0 GPA. The University of Colorado Denver aspires to recruit academically talented international students from diverse geographic regions who will contribute to the university community; the Presidential Scholar Award helps to make this goal a reality.
The University of Colorado Denver’s downtown campus graduate division has received an all-time record number of more than 1,000 international student applications for Fall 2013 admission. Offers of admission and overall enrollment trends are also increasing.
By welcoming international students to the United States and encouraging American students to study abroad, institutions are enhancing the competitiveness of the U.S. educational system, connecting future global leaders with American culture and business, and creating a positive impact on the national economy.
