ABOUT BRIGHT FUTURES
By nurturing and supporting the next generation through post-secondary tuition grant assistance, Bright Futures is building a strong foundation for a stable economy. Understanding the importance of trade and academic skills, the Weld County Board of Commissioners launched the program in 2015 to financially assist students who pursue post-secondary education or training and certification programs from a Title IV accredited institution. The program is for qualifying Weld County residents who have graduated from high school, obtained a GED, and honorably discharged U.S. Veterans, after 2016. Qualified and accepted recipients receive financial assistance as a last-dollar program to pursue a degree or certification from post-secondary education or training program within the approved Bright Futures Geographic Region.
