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. Since the Foundation’s launch in 2000, we’ve awarded more than $4 million in scholarships to over 450 students across Colorado.
Pinnacol Foundation scholarships may be used for four-year, two-year or trade programs at accredited colleges, universities, community colleges and vocational schools. They average $3,500 per student per year, and may only be used for the costs of attending school.
Applications are available Feb. 1 – April 15. To learn more and to apply, visit Pinnacolfoundation.org.
