Who is considered a COSI Scholar?

COSI scholars are students who earned the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship (COSI), the COSI Matching Scholarship (MSS),the Second Chance Scholarship (SCS) or the Foundation for Colorado Community Colleges scholarship (FCCC). 

RRCC students can apply for COSI funds throughout the Red Rocks Community College Foundation Scholarship Application. That doesn’t necessarily mean the will receive the funds but they are added to the potential pool of recipients, which streamlines the application process.  

Participants will be notified by the Red Rocks Foundation Department if they are COSI Scholars or COSI Matching Students.
