I want to get back to work

Has COVID-19 impacted your employment? Are you thinking of starting or continuing college? Thanks to the Colorado General Assembly,  the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI) funds colleges across the state to support workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and provide Coloradans support in accessing and completing their credential or degree and get Back to Work.

Colorado currently has six programs, and hopes to expand to more campuses starting in Fall 2021, if SB21-232 is passed.
