Enacted by SB23-205(opens in new window), the Universal High School Scholarship Program, renamed Opportunity Next Colorado, aims to increase enrollment in Colorado-based postsecondary education and training programs, and will prioritize learners who pursue an in-demand or high-priority pathway.

This is a one-time scholarship for Colorado’s Class of 2024 high school graduates and equivalent completers for use in the 2024-2025 academic year. Scholarship recipients may receive up to $1500 to help cover tuition, fees, books and equipment.

In addition to providing scholarships, Opportunity Next will offer personalized FAFSA and college application guidance, starting with Colorado schools that have below average FAFSA completion rates. Additionally, group coaching for families will occur throughout the summer months. This evidence-based approach will aid in the prevention of summer melt and first-year student retention.

One-on-one education and career advising will also be extended to the Colorado Class of 2024 to support them in clarifying their goals, outlining actionable steps and identifying and addressing obstacles.  Qualified coaches will support these students, while also informing them of the state’s high-priority and in-demand pathways, thereby increasing opportunities for economic prosperity.
