Scholarships & Student Success

Hello World


1GenU is a four-year developmental and community-building program that focuses on assisting first-generation students and their families in navigating the institution while providing mentorship and academic resources to ensure their success at DU and post-graduation. Each year of the program focuses on a specific aspect of academic, professional and personal development.



The Latino Alumni Affinity group (DULAA) supports, promotes and channels the academic, social, professional and developmental interests of the University of Denver’s Latinx community — past, present and future. We're committed to helping Latinx students succeed both in and outside of the classroom. If you're a Latinx graduate or friend of the University, help make a difference and become a part of our group.



Short for Equity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, E-STEM is a partnership between the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, the Ritchie School of Engineering & Computer Science and the Center for Multicultural Excellence. This grant-funded program creates pathways to academic success for students from historically underrepresented groups in the fields of science, math and engineering.


GS Professional Development Fund

The Graduate Student Professional Development Grant (GSPDG) was established to encourage student participation in scholarly and creative activities that support academic progress and foster professional growth. In the 8 years of awarding conference travel grants, DU graduate students have presented in 85 US cities, 37 US states, and 29 countries, at a number of competitive conferences. In 2018-2019 alone, awards were given to 57 students across 9 divisions and more than 37 programs, supplementing student association funding by an average of over $500 and allowing them to advance the scholarship in their respective fields through innovative and groundbreaking research.
