Help spread the word: Scholarships now available for the children of injured workers

For some students, continuing their education after high school isn’t guaranteed. It’s not a lack of good grades that stops them from going to college or into vocational training — it’s a parent’s workplace injury. That’s where the Pinnacol Foundation comes in. We created our scholarship program to ensure that the children of people seriously injured or killed on the job have the opportunity to pursue their education dreams.

The application period for the 2019-20 school year is now open, and we need help getting the word out to as many eligible students as possible. If you know a family who might benefit from this scholarship, please encourage them to visit to learn more.

Scholarships average $4,500 per student per year and may be used only for the costs of attending school at accredited colleges, universities, community colleges and vocational schools.
