Columbine Memorial Scholarship for students supports engaged students who have made a positive impact in their school and/or larger community. At least two of the students selected will be from Columbine High School.
- Graduating from a public high school in the Jefferson County School District
- Have an unweighted cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 at the time the application is submitted
- Planning to begin classes at an accredited university, college, community college, or technical school in the United States in the upcoming fall semester.
Scholarships will be awarded once a year through a competitive process based on:
- extracurricular activities and leadership
Scholarship awards will be paid directly to a recipient’s educational institution and may be used for tuition, fees, books, supplies, and other required educational expenses for the upcoming academic year for full-time study at an accredited post-secondary school in the United States.
Automatic renewals for this scholarship do not take place, nor is awarding guaranteed simply because a recipient received the award previously. A student may re-apply for the opportunity if they have been previously awarded. Recipients have a maximum of four years to receive funding.
Please note that award disbursement is contingent upon the outside scholarship policies of a recipient’s college or university. Awards must be used for the upcoming academic year.
