The College Opportunity Fund

College Opportunity Fund

The State of Colorado is Investing in Your Education

Are you planning on attending a private or public college in the state of Colorado? Here is your opportunity to receive this state benefit if you attend a participating college and meet the eligibility requirements.

The College Opportunity Fund (COF), created by the Colorado Legislature, provides a stipend to eligible undergraduate students. The stipend pays a portion of your total in-state tuition when you attend a participating college.

Eligible undergraduate students must apply, be admitted and enroll in classes at a participating college to receive this benefit. Both new and continuing students are eligible for the stipend.

Qualifying students may use the stipend for eligible undergraduate classes. The stipend is paid on a per credit hour basis directly to the college at which the student is enrolled. The credit-hour amount is set annually by the General Assembly.
