The FLC Colorado Equity Scholarship

For first-year and transfer students. This scholarship is one tool FLC uses to counter everyday and longstanding ways students from underrepresented and underserved groups experience racial and social injustice. We hope this scholarship makes a difference in our students' lives.

  • Equity—The FLC Colorado Equity Scholarship supports equitable access for Colorado residents from underrepresented and underserved communities.
  • Diversity—Fort Lewis College is proud to be a majority-minority (59% students of color), Native-serving institution. Diversity is the cornerstone of our strong and vibrant educational community.
  • Inclusion—We believe a healthy and productive learning environment is inclusive of people from communities that have been and are still underrepresented and underserved in higher education.

It is an $8,000 scholarship distributed in $2,000 increments over four years for degree-seeking undergraduates who maintain full-time status and a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. Unlike FLC's tuition merit scholarships, students can combine this scholarship with other institutional aid and/or the Native American Tuition Waiver.

The Reisher Scholars Program

The Reisher Scholars Program awards scholarships to Fort Lewis College students who demonstrate financial need and merit, and who are:

  • Colorado residents or out-of-state residents receiving the Native American Tuition Waiver
    Rising sophomores, who would receive three years of support
  • Community college transfer students entering Fort Lewis as Juniors, who would receive two years of support
  • The program’s goal is to assist promising students in completing their undergraduate degree while taking out minimal debt.

Skyhawk Emergency Grant

Fort Lewis College is committed to helping our enrolled students reach their full potential and persist through graduation.

We understand when students can suddenly face different challenges, including the inability to secure housing, afford basic needs, find access to resources for online learning, or sometimes have unexpected expenses arise, making it hard for students to concentrate on academics. Unexpected expenses could be car repairs, emergency medical bills, or something out of the ordinary that you did not expect. *It is important to note that your college bill is not an UNEXPECTED expense and will not qualify.

In these situations, the Skyhawk Emergency Grant Committee may be able to help students cover these expenses with a one-time grant thanks to generous gifts through Fort Lewis College Foundation donors. When we review grant requests, we consider a student’s financial, academic and disciplinary records as well as a student’s course load and degree-seeking status.

Eligibility for Skyhawk Emergency Grant

To qualify for a Skyhawk Emergency Grant, you must be a current student taking courses currently at Fort Lewis College and must have utilized all available funding sources.

This grant opens up for applications on January 23, 2023.
