Boettcher Colorado Scholarships

Colorado Scholarships

We need Colorado’s most dynamic thinkers, doers, and difference makers to stay in Colorado so they can positively impact communities across our state. The Boettcher Foundation Scholarship supports Colorado’s high-potential graduating seniors by providing them with a comprehensive scholarship program to attend a Colorado college or university.

Biomedical Research Grants

Colorado can only be a leader in scientific innovation if its most dynamic scientific minds are supported at early stages in their work. The Boettcher Foundation’s support of biomedical research through its Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Program  aims to support scientific innovation in Colorado by providing biomedical research funding for early career investigators at the state’s research institutions.
