For the 2008-2009 academic year, Pinnacol Foundation has awarded $269,500 in scholarships to 94 students whose parents were killed or permanently disabled in work-related accidents in Colorado. Workplace accidents take a severe toll on families, especially the children. Family members struggle financially, physically and emotionally after an accident. The children often take on a lot more responsibility than other kids their age, and the Pinnacol Foundation scholarship seeks to provide these students with the financial support needed to focus on their future. To qualify for a Pinnacol Foundation scholarship, a student must be the natural child, adopted child, or stepchild of a worker killed or permanently disabled in a compensable work-related accident while employed by a Colorado-based business, regardless of insurance carrier. Scholarships are awarded based on the severity of the parents injury, financial need and other factors.Area students receiving scholarships are Daniel Deming of Rifle, Westwood College; Benjamin Fout of Glenwood Springs, Colorado Mountain College; and Westley Fout of Glenwood Springs, Colorado Mountain College.
