The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

  • Be dependent* children, under age 24, of full-time Boulder Scientific Company employees who have a minimum of one year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children are defined as biological children, stepchildren or legally adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • Be high school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school in the United States for the entire upcoming academic year.
  • Have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale or its equivalent.
