The Merit-based scholarships for Colorado high school seniors offer a full-ride to any four-year institution in Colorado. But the Boettcher Scholarship is about much more than financial help. Boettcher Scholarship offer scholars with rare opportunities to enhance their time in college, access to a broad network of successful alumni, and additional grants and experiences to jumpstart both their future careers and their leadership potential. Upon receiving this Colorado scholarship, Boettcher Scholars automatically join a more than a 65-year strong network of Boettcher alumni. Access to these alumni leads to great conversations, connections with local, national and international leaders, and can even turn into meaningful internships and jobs. We often hear from our scholars that the “Boettcher connection” helped them to find some of their best friends, business partners, and future investors.
