  • Miller Scholarship-Conference Reimbursement Application within MCE

    *This is NOT a COESA application. This is a tuition based scholarship that students may obtain once a year through the Morgridge College of Education. This is NOT a COESA scholarship, grant, or application. For more information, please email James Banman. You will have to follow thorough directions to submit this application, and COESA will not be involved in this process. Good luck! :) 

  • Graduate Student Association Reimbursement Application

    This is not a reimbursement through COESA, rather an additional reimbursement through University of Denver's larger student association, the Graduate Student Government. In order to be eligible, you must first receive conference funding via COESA. Once you have completed the GSG application, please submit this form to the COESA treasurer in the mailbox on the 2nd floor. The COESA treasurer will verify the application and send the application to the GSG finance department.
