Assistance League fosters students success!

Since 1966, Assistance League of Pueblo has provided scholarships to deserving students at both Pueblo Community College and Colorado State University - Pueblo (formerly University of Southern Colorado.)  Our Scholarship Committee works with the respective foundations at each university to find eligible and deserving applicants. 

Our members who make up the Scholarship Committee interview the applicants and make their decisions. Current eligibility requirements are that the applicants have successfully completed their freshman year and are entering their sophomore year with a 3.5 GPA or higher, and are residents of Pueblo County.  The number of scholarships given is dependent on available funds, but usually cover full tuition and basic fees.  We are very proud of our scholars, and many return to help us by using the skills they acquired in their college training.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship from Assistance League of Pueblo, contact your school's foundation office for further information.
