Help NFN Grow
We have been entrusted with funds from donors who want to make an impact on student’s lives. These scholarships are targeted by location, high school, field of study, and other criteria that reflect the passion of the donor. There are also awards for those who may not fit the mold of the traditional college-bound student. Scholarships range from $1,000 to $5,000.
The application process is simple. Students are invited to complete one brief, general application that will automatically match them to the scholarship awards for which they qualify; they can then complete any supplemental information required for each opportunity.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, the Foundation awarded 43 students over $530,000 in scholarships. These recipients are from a broad range of communities served by the Foundation, including Berthoud, Estes Park, Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor as well as Atwood and Sterling in Eastern Colorado. Current award recipients attend 11 colleges and universities in Colorado along with Auburn, Notre Dame, Grand Canyon University, and Texas Christian University.
