Boettcher Scholarship 

The Boettcher Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship for Colorado high school seniors. The Boettcher Foundation defines merit to mean superior scholastic ability, intellectual curiosity, leadership, service, outstanding character, and demonstrating a commitment to school and community activities. Lived experience and the context in which a student has thrived as a leader, either because of or in spite of personal circumstances is deeply important to the Boettcher Foundation. Selection for the Boettcher Scholarship is based on meeting this criteria. A successful candidate also demonstrates a strong potential for continued leadership and service. To apply or get more information please visit the Boettcher Foundation page. Scholarship awarding is decided by the Boettcher Foundation.
