How & When to Apply
Your high school counselor will get detailed information about the Scholarship selection process in September. Counselors will then log in to the Scholarship application site, create unique accounts and then invite each eligible student to apply.
If you are a rising senior in a Colorado high school, talk with your counselor to decide if the Boettcher Scholarship is a good option for you. The application process is rigorous and competition is intense. At the same time, those previously ineligible will now be considered for the award and will benefit from the resources included on the online application site, including the ability to save work in a data file that can be uploaded to other scholarship sites.
If you decide that the Boettcher Scholarship is a good fit for you, you’ll need to complete the official application on the Boettcher Scholarship Application website. You’ll also need to submit an official transcript and standardized ACT or SAT test scores mailed directly from the testing agency/agencies to the Foundation.
All forms and materials must be postmarked or electronically time-stamped no later than 11:59 p.m. on November 1 of your senior year.
If you make an Early Decision commitment to an out-of-state institution, you won’t be eligible for a Boettcher Scholarship. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to leave your options open and apply to colleges during the spring admissions timeframe. If you are patient and wait to apply during the standard application process which notifies students of admissions decisions in April, you will be able to consider more colleges and funding options, including the possibility of winning and accepting a Boettcher Scholarship.
