40 awards offered annually.
Scholarships are awarded by a committee selected by the trustees of the Boettcher Foundation. Selection criteria include superior scholastic ability, evidence of leadership and involvement, service to community and school, and outstanding character. While Boettcher Scholars come from all over the state, represent diverse backgrounds, and posses an incredible array of talents, they share two overriding characteristics: an intense intellectual curiosity and a passion for involvement. A Boettcher Scholar is expected to participate and make contributions in endeavors outside the regular academic curriculum, consistent with abilities, interests, and potential presented by the scholar to the foundation on the basis of which the award was made.
