What are Green and Gold Scholarships for Non-Residents?

Colorado State University automatically awards Green and Gold Scholarships for non-residents to eligible freshmen/first-year students who are not residents of Colorado. No scholarship application needed! These scholarships can be renewed for up to eight semesters, meaning you could earn up to $10,000 per semester, or up to $40,000 over the course of four years.
