CMC Rifle Aspen Prize


Colorado Mountain College is in the running for $25,000 to help put a great idea into motion. And we – and students in one of our Logo - Aspen Ideas Festival.communities – need your support by June 1!

At our Rifle campus this fall we are launching an innovative Career Academy, which will allow high school students to earn a college certificate by taking courses through CMC. We have been selected to compete for these funds to support this much-needed new program through the Aspen Ideas Festival, for their inaugural Aspen Ideas Award.
