Application requirements for the Boettcher Scholarship are:

  • Official Transcript

Additional Information: 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.

Award Amount: The scholarship covers full tuition and fees at one of the approved schools, renewable for three years by maintaining a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The scholarship will also provide each recipient with a living stipend ($2,800) to defray the cost of room and board, book allowance, international education grant, enrichment grant, and annual or campus scholar events. The total amount of the scholarship (over four years) depends on a number of factors, including the cost of a scholar's institution, and can range from $50,000 to more than $160,000.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $1,680,000.
