Help spread the word to eligible students

The Pinnacol Foundation scholarship program is now accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year. Applications are due Feb. 15. Please help us spread the word to as many eligible students as possible. If you know a family that might benefit from this scholarship, please encourage them to visit to learn more. 

The foundation, created in 2000, provides scholarships each year to students whose parents have been seriously injured or killed in work-related accidents, regardless of the insurance carrier. Scholarships average $4,700 per student per year and may only be used for the costs of attending school at accredited colleges, universities, community colleges and vocational schools. 

“The cost of attending college, with a disabled parent, is beyond daunting,” said scholarship recipient Elizabeth Ruzicka. “This scholarship will help ease the burden. Thank you.”

To be eligible to apply for a foundation scholarship, a student must be the natural child, adopted child, stepchild or full dependent of a worker who was injured or killed in a compensable work-related accident during the course and scope of employment with a Colorado-based employer. The foundation evaluates the severity of the injury sustained by each student’s parent or guardian as well as the student’s academic achievement, financial need, civic involvement and strength of a submitted essay. Students must have a minimum 2.0 GPA and be between the ages of 16 and 25 at the time of application.
