Support future leaders.
Privately funded scholarships enable mountaineers to pursue their degrees and make the most of their college careers while limiting the financial burden. Contribute to a scholarship fund or go the extra mile and fund a scholarship of your own!

Funded by Nancy Menan (’64), the Menan Foundation Scholarship provides four $4,000 scholarships to deserving students who are serious about their studies. Recipients are intellectually curious, driven and ambitious learners, and actively work to make the most of their education at Western.For guidelines and information about the application process, go to the Western Colorado University Menan Foundation Scholars Program page.
