COLLEGE ADVISOR, EAST HIGH SCHOOL, acardona@denverscholarship.org

Aliyah was born and raised in Northern Colorado and is a proud first-generation college student. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Colorado State University (CSU) where she later worked as an Admissions Counselor helping students find their collegiate home at CSU. It was during this time that she returned to school at Adams State University, earning her master’s degree in Higher Education Administration and Leadership. Through this program and her work recruiting students to CSU, Aliyah gained a passion for college access and helping students determine their next educational steps, wherever that may be. Aliyah is excited to continue this work as part of the Denver Scholarship Foundation family! Learn more about Aliyah on LinkedIn.

The Denver Scholarship Foundation makes college possible for thousands of Denver Public Schools’ graduates each year. For many students in Denver, continuing their education beyond high school doesn’t seem like a viable option.

Most often, it’s not low grades or lack of extracurricular activities keeping them from pursuing their dreams. There are thousands of intelligent, hard-working individuals facing the most intimidating barrier to college of all – they think it just isn’t possible. But the Denver Scholarship Foundation is changing that. We’re making college possible for Denver’s students.
