Mikkelson Foundation Student Scholarship Program

Scholarship Sponsored by Mikkelson Foundation

Value: $4,000
Awards Available: 3
Deadline : Apr 12, 2024

Each year, The Mikkelson Foundation Scholarship is awarded to an outstanding graduate of a Colorado high school who has been accepted to pursue a course of study or instruction at an accredited college or university granting undergraduate and/or graduate degrees. The recipient will be a student who has demonstrated an ability to excel in the academic disciplines of mathematics and science, who will major in engineering, physical or biological sciences, or mathematics, and who has the potential for substantial additional achievement after graduation.

In 2024, The Mikkelson Foundation will provide three scholarships of $5000 each. The scholarship is renewable for up to a maximum of four years providing that the recipient remains a student in good standing at their college or university.

Applications must be received by the Foundation on or before April 12, 2024. The application package consists of the following:

  1. A complete official transcript of the student's academic record in high school.
  2. Copies of national standardized test scores if not included on the transcript.
  3. Three references from high school teachers, counselors, employers, or activities directors. Be sure to tell your recommenders that this must be received by April 12.
  4. Application form completed by student.
  5. An original personal essay.
