CMU endowment goal: $300,000
Colorado Mesa University President Tim Foster is giving private donors until Dec. 31 to raise $150,000 to create an endowment fund for scholarships dedicated to students at the university’s Montrose campus.
Foster said in a news release the university will match the funds and create a $300,000 endowment for scholarships in Montrose if donors meet the deadline.
The Montrose campus currently enrolls more than 330 students but has room for more following a $1.5 million renovation this summer.
A student computer lab, meeting room, study areas and a science lab were added to the campus and a medical office assistant program was added to the curriculum at the Montrose campus.
“With our recent renovation, we can now accommodate between 700 to 800 students, thus more than doubling the current enrollment,” Colorado Mesa University-Montrose Campus Director Joey Montoya Boese said in the news release.
