Boettcher Scholarship at UCCS
The Boettcher Scholarship program is a merit-based scholarship for Colorado high school seniors that provides what is essentially a full-ride to any four-year institution in Colorado. At UCCS, the Boettcher Scholarship Promise guarantees the following benefits:
Each November, Boettcher will announce which applicants made it to the semi-finalist level. We know these students have met rigorous standards to qualify for this honor. UCCS guarantees each of these students a minimum of $20,000 in grants and scholarships over four years at UCCS. That’s a guaranteed $5,000 off of your tuition per year! Many semifinalists will qualify for much more by applying to UCCS scholarships before the Feb. 1st deadline.
UCCS hosts a special visit day for all Boettcher Semi-Finalists who are interested in learning about what we have to offer. Faculty members and current Boettcher Scholars will meet you in a causal environment to answer questions about UCCS and the next steps in the scholarship application/ interview process. Bring your family to enjoy a meal and the fun!
Approximately 100 finalists are chosen to interview with Boettcher in March. If you make it to this round of selection, UCCS will increase the guaranteed gift aid to $24,000, or $6,000 per year for four years.
Boettcher Scholarship Recipient: $90,000 estimated
Congratulations! UCCS will now guarantee that your tuition, fees, books, and on-campus housing are fully covered for four years by combining your Boettcher scholarship with UCCS grants and scholarships. Many Boettcher Scholars receive additional scholarships that cover costs such as off-campus housing or personal expenses. We work with each scholar to maximize their scholarship opportunities to get the most funding possible.
