Finish Your Education with a Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI) Grant
Were your college plans cut short by the pandemic? You’re not alone.
That's why FRCC now has two new programs to help people go back to school and get back to work—and we can help you pay for it too.
FRCC has received two grants—totaling more than $4 million—from the state Department of Higher Education’s Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI). FRCC will use these funds to re-enroll and support students who have started their education, but had to stop without completing a degree.

How COSI Grants Will Help
Our two COSI Grant programs help people who left college during the pandemic get back to school -- and work. They provide scholarships to help students pay for their schooling, as well as support services to ensure they can complete their program of study.
Finish What You Started program. Students who have either been out of school for more than two semesters, or who have applied to the college but did not enroll in classes because they were impacted by the pandemic can get a combination of financial support and other additional services..
Back to Work program. People who are looking to begin school to learn skills for a new career may also be eligible for up to $1,500 per year in grant money.
Students in both programs will also get to work directly with a student success coach who will help guide them through the process—including assisting with financial planning, academic planning, career planning and more.
