This year, due to the generosity of the Montrose community during our 9-11-2011 fundraiser, two scholarships will be awarded to support Colorado high school students. Available for the 2012-2013 school year, the scholarships may be used for any accredited two or four year college, university, or technical school. Scholarship money may be used for tuition, books, lab fees, or other costs directly related to the degree program. The scholarship recipients will receive an award of $2,500 for two years, for a total of $5,000. The scholarship payment will be made directly to the school on the students’ behalf at the start of each semester/quarter for the first two years. In order to maintain the scholarship, the recipients must maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA throughout the first two years of the educational program. Submission of grades along with a personal written assessment of accomplishments must be submitted to the Kit Faragher Foundation at the end of each semester/quarter for the recipients’ first two years.
