06 May 40 Colorado high school stand-outs awarded prestigious and valuable Boettcher Foundation Scholarships
May 6, 2014 — After rigorously considering more than 1,600 applicants, the Board of Trustees of the Boettcher Foundation has selected 40 Colorado high school seniors to receive the 2014 Boettcher Foundation Scholarship. Boettcher Scholars are awarded virtually full-ride, merit-based scholarships to attend a four-year college or university within the State of Colorado.
The list of Boettcher Scholars includes some of the most promising young people from across the state.
“The goal of the Boettcher Scholarship program is to keep the best talent in Colorado here by connecting them with the outstanding opportunities offered by our in-state institutions,” said Tim Schultz, President and Executive Director of the Boettcher Foundation. “We know that these students will become leaders on their campuses and continue serving others with their gifts, thereby contributing to the greater Colorado community.”
Now in its 62nd year, the Boettcher Scholarship program has awarded more than 2,300 scholarships, with more than $3 million paid out each year. This places the program among the largest merit-based scholarship programs in the nation.
The scholarship includes virtually all expenses to attend the Colorado school of each Scholar’s choice: full tuition, fees, a book allowance, and an annual stipend for living expenses. The award is granted for eight semesters or twelve quarters at either a public or private four-year college or university in the state, provided the Scholar maintains a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
“The selection process to earn this competitive award is extremely rigorous. Each year, we have literally hundreds of students who rank number one in their class, are student body presidents, National Honor Society officers, musicians, star athletes, entrepreneurs, and accomplished community volunteers,” said Tiffany Anderson, Scholarship Program Director. “Choosing just 40 is always hard, but this year it was especially difficult. There are many promising students in Colorado. We’re proud to have these 40 representing the Boettcher family.”
