Board Members & Meetings

The Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative Board is comprised of the members of the Colorado Workforce Development Council Executive Committee along with three additional appointees who represent the different types of public Higher Education Institutions in the state.

Appointed board members are familiar with the various approaches to student success, academic persistence, and workforce development best practices that, when coupled with tuition assistance programs, ensure students succeed in their post-secondary careers. They are advocates for the program and assist with fundraising and community outreach.
