Alumni Association Board scholarship helps newly readmitted Roadrunners earn their degree.

Financial issues are one of the top reasons students drop out of college; Roadrunners are no exception.

The Alumni Board Finish Line Endowed Scholarship – established by the Metropolitan State University of Denver Alumni Association Board of Directors – covers tuition and fees for qualifying, readmitted MSU Denver students who are within two semesters of completing their bachelor’s degree, providing them with the support they need to get back in the race and achieve their dream of earning a degree.

“Nobody should have to choose between completing their degree and taking care of themselves and their families,” said Brandi Rideout, senior director of alumni engagement and executive director of the Alumni Association. “The Alumni Association understands the financial pressures students face when pursuing their degrees; we want to be part of the solution.”
