Current Scholars

As our current Scholars are growing as leaders in the classroom, Boettcher provides additional opportunities to expand their skills through educational grants, access to Boettcher’s network of leaders and Foundation events.

General Scholar Expectations

We’ve established these minimum standards to help our Scholars maximize their college experience.

The term of the scholarship is four years. However, at the end of each academic semester/quarter each Scholar’s record is reviewed. Renewal of scholarships is not guaranteed. Renewal is at the discretion of the Boettcher Foundation, but is primarily based on the following requirements being met each year:

  • Complete a minimum of 12 academic hours (or three blocks) each semester/quarter
  • Maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average
  • Submit a 1-2 page narrative reviewing the past academic year (and highlighting community service and extracurricular activities) to the Foundation by June 15 each year
  • Adhere to the Boettcher Foundation conduct contract that Scholars sign when accepting their awards, and again at the end of each academic year
  • Participate in Presidents’/Chancellors’ Events annually every spring (if applicable to your campus)
  • Attend Scholars Experience annually during the summer (includes Scholars entering their freshmen year to their senior year as well as any other Scholars who are still being funded due to having taken a gap year/semester, etc.)

We strongly encourage you to participate in service to the community, research opportunities, internships, and special programs.

It is our top priority to support our Scholar community and help them succeed. Please contact us if there is a problem or if you have any concerns that you may not be meeting the requirements or conduct policies.

Special Events

The Boettcher Foundation or your campus may invite you to events, roundtables, and special classes. While these programs are optional, if you sign up, you should do your best to attend. We take follow-through very seriously. Frequently canceling or dropping out of events at the last minute reflects poorly on you as a Boettcher Scholar and as a leader.
