The Displaced Aurarian Scholarship Program provides former Auraria residents and their descendants scholarships to all programs offered on the Auraria campus. Beginning in the Spring 2022 semester, the program is expanding to include all direct descendants of the displaced Aurarians in perpetuity. 

The Displaced Aurarian Scholarship was designed to provide funds for tuition and fees for undergraduate and graduate students who were residents of the Auraria neighborhood between between 1955 and 1973, before the Auraria Higher Education Campus was built. The scholarship was also available to the children and grandchildren of these residents. From 1988 through 2021, more than 600 people received Displaced Aurarian Scholarships.
