Glenwood teen wins Boettcher scholarship

Matthew Young of Glenwood Springs has won a 2003 Boettcher Scholarship.

Each year the Boettcher Foundation grants 40 merit-based scholarships to Colorado high school graduates.

The awards cover virtually all college expenses, including full tuition, fees, a book allowance and living stipend, for eight semesters at either a public or private four-year college or university within the state as long as the student maintains a 3.0 grade point average.

Selection is based on merit and all seniors in Colorado can compete based on their individual accomplishments. This year’s scholarship winners were selected from among 900 qualified applicants on the basis of their academic performance, demonstrated ability, outstanding character and participation and leadership in school and in the community.

To be eligible, students must rank in the top 5 percent of their graduating class, have a score of at least 1200 on the SAT or 27 on the ACT, and be a U.S. citizen and a Colorado resident for their junior and senior year of high school.
