Westminster...Where Colorado Connects for Business

Small Business Scholarship Program

The Small Business Scholarship Program provides reimbursement of business training expenses to licensed Westminster entrepreneurs and small business owners/employers with 50 or fewer employees. The program reimburses 50 percent of the cost of tuition, fees, and required materials, up to $500 per business, per calendar year, after successful completion of courses.

Courses may include:

  • Management
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Sales
  • Computer Skills
  • Human Resources
  • Manufacturing Trades
  • New Technology
The program allows for a great deal of flexibility in choosing the type of training.  All courses that reasonably benefit the business are eligible.  Applicants may choose courses from any accredited institution or generally accepted program.

How It Works:

  1. Choose what type of training will benefit your business.
  2. Complete the Small Business Scholarship Program Application (Application Download to the right) and return to the Economic Development Office at Westminster City Hall (4800 W. 92nd Ave., Westminster, CO 80031) or FAX it to 303-706-3922 prior to the course start date.  A course description should accompany the application.
  3. City staff reviews the application and approves or denies the request. Approval is based on availability of program funds and the course's contribution to business operations.
  4. If approved, the business owner/employee registers and pays for course tuition and required materials.
  5. After successful completion of the course, submit proof of satisfactory completion (completion certificate, letter of completion, etc.) and proof of payment (receipt, credit card statement, returned check, etc.) to the city's Economic Development Office.
  6. The business receives 50% reimbursement for the course, up to $500 per calendar year. Note: reimbursement is made directly to the business, not to the program participant.
