The Boettcher Foundation holds its Scholars in high esteem—and we have high expectations for them in the future. Our Scholars were selected to represent Colorado’s best and brightest, and we want to see them shine throughout their entire lives and careers. That’s why we’ve established minimum standards for our Scholars.
Ordinarily, the term of the Scholarship is four years. However, at the end of each academic semester/quarter each Scholar’s record will be 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:
Requirements for Boettcher Scholars
- Complete a minimum of 12 hours (or 4 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 service and extra-curricular activities) to the Foundation by June 15 each year
- Adhere to the Boettcher Foundation Conduct Contract that Scholars sign in accepting their awards and at the end of each academic year
These three requirements are just a base from which our Scholars build their college experiences. The Boettcher Foundation wants to promote an all-around education for its Scholars. As a result, we strongly encourage them to participate in volunteer service to the community, research opportunities and internships to enhance their career options and to benefit their individual schools and communities.
