“The Boettcher Foundation invests in the promise of Colorado and the potential of Coloradans, and Boettcher Scholars represent the very best of our state,” said Katie Kramer, President and CEO of the Boettcher Foundation.
Established in 1952, the Boettcher Scholarship program annually awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors in Colorado. The four-year scholarship includes virtually all expenses to attend the Colorado school of the recipient’s choice: full tuition, fees, a book allowance and an annual stipend for living expenses. The scholarship also includes programming and support to ensure that students reach their full leadership potential. Scholars are selected based on academics, service, leadership and character.
