Issue 2A will provide debt relief and fund the scholarships and support services students need to achieve a degree or certification.

Thousands of qualified, smart, and talented Denver students will skip college simply because of the high costs of attendance. Issue 2A will ensure that Denver students who put in the time and work to earn college admission will have a fair shot at getting a degree, even if they come from a low-income background or would be the first in their family to attend college.

Next

How Does this Proposal Work?

The city will create a non-profit entity to partner with scholarship organizations that provide grants and support services by matching funds from private philanthropy. It will also partner with higher education institutions here in Colorado to provide student debt relief. Issue 2A will increase the power and reach of scholarship organizations and decrease the crippling debt load that Denver students face—all using a model that rewards student success and completion.
