Boettcher foundation

More than 1,400 Colorado students applied for the prestigious Boettcher Foundation Scholarship this year, with 42 being named recipients. Of those, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) is proudly home to five recipients.

Congratulations to these outstanding DCSD scholars and Boettcher recipients:

Ansh Desai from Legend High School will attend the University of Colorado                         

 

Sydney Marchando of Rock Canyon High School is heading to the Colorado School of Mines

Jenna Trost from Castle View High School has her sights set on the University of Colorado

Niketna Vivek from Legend High School is heading to the University of Colorado                       

 

Boettcher scholars receive a four-year scholarship that includes virtually all expenses to attend the Colorado school of their choice – full tuition, fees, a book allowance and an annual stipend for living expenses.

“The Boettcher Scholarship aims to keep Colorado’s highest-potential students in the state by connecting them with the outstanding opportunities offered by our in-state institutions,” said Katie Kramer, CEO of the Boettcher Foundation.

Scholars are selected based on academics, service, leadership and character.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
