Created over 60 years ago, the Boettcher Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship program designed for Colorado high school seniors. The program covers the cost of a scholar’s tuition, fees and books for eight semesters or 12 quarters at approved Colorado four-year universities or colleges. Additionally, Boettcher Scholars receive a living stipend. Forty-two scholarships are awarded annually. Approximately 100 Colorado high school senior finalists are selected to interview in Denver for the merit-based scholarship from an initial pool of applicants, which is typically around 1,500.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Program Scholarship is an achievement-based scholarship awarded to graduating high school seniors. Students are recognized for their capacity to lead and serve, as well as their commitment to making a significant impact on their schools and communities. With the 29th class in 2017, the program has provided over 5,850 Coca-Cola Scholars with more than $63 million in educational support. Each year, 150 Coca-Cola Scholars are selected to receive a $20,000 scholarship.
