Fund Details
1. Sachs Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship

Description:

Scholarship General Requirements:
  1. Black/African American
  2. Applicants must be a full-time Colorado resident for a MINIMUM OF FIVE YEARS. Residence due to military orders to Colorado may be accepted on a case by case basis.
  3. Cumulative high school GPA of at least 3.0 (weighted) to apply.
We consider a person to be a Black/African-American if they are a member of the Black/African-American race. Applicants with mixed racial and ethnic backgrounds must demonstrate their racial identity to be predominantly Black/African-American. The Trustees will make a determination as to the qualification in those cases that are uncertain. Information as to philosophy, commitment to the Black/African-American race and self-identity may also be considered in such areas.

The above criteria are conditions that must be met in addition to the specific requirements of the scholarship you are applying for.

Required Attachments:

In order to complete your application you will need to attach the following in your application:
  • A copy of the first two pages of your parent’s most current completed federal tax return (IRS form 1040). If you are considered to be independent, you will need to submit only your tax forms.
  • First 5 pages of your FASFA and your full Student Aid Report.
  • A recent small photograph.
  • A copy of your high school transcript through the end of the last semester.
