Boettcher Foundation Scholarship: Since 1952, the Boettcher Foundation has awarded more than $65 million in undergraduate scholarships to many of Colorado’s best and brightest students.  Merit-based awards provide what is essentially a full-ride to any 4-year institution in Colorado, and the prestigious program is the oldest in the state.

The Foundation has now opened up the opportunity to apply for the Boettcher Scholarship to more students throughout Colorado by eliminating class rank and test scores as criteria for applying.

The competition for these 4-year awards is intense. Prospective Scholars go through a rigorous application and interview process. Annually more than 1,600 students apply for the 42 available scholarships. More information can be found on Boettcher Foundation

The Stroud Scholars Program-Colorado College

Stroud Scholars prepares students for selective college environments by working directly with high promise youth to provide academic preparation, mentorship, and guidance navigating admissions and financial aid processes to CC and beyond.  Students successfully completing the three-year college preparatory program will earn admission to Colorado College and receive a financial aid package that will enable them to attend.

The program offers a developmental pathway beginning the summer after a student’s first year of high school and ending with a successful transition into Colorado College or another intentionally chosen college or university. For three summers, at no cost to the youth or their families, Colorado College will host youth on our campus for three weeks. During this time, participants will focus on cultivating quantitative reasoning and writing skills.  Participants will also engage in programming designed to help them prepare practically for the college admissions and financial aid processes.  Lastly, the program will support participants holistically to thrive in college by helping them build a strong foundation of hard and soft skills, broaden their aspirations and confidence, and connect them to a supportive community of peers and mentors. Knowledge and skills gained during the summer experience will also be supported and furthered through a series of academic year programs.

For our pilot year (July 2020), we will accept 25 rising sophomores from the Pikes Peak Region.  Each subsequent year, we will continue to support those students accepted into the program as well as accept a new cohort of rising sophomores. In this way, we will continue to expand the program year-by-year.The Stroud Scholars Program
