Boettcher ScholarsTwo DCSD Students Named 2019 Boettcher Scholars
Nearly 1,500 Colorado students applied for a prestigious Boettcher Foundation Scholarship -- a four-year scholarship that includes virtually all expenses to attend the Colorado school of their choice. They receive full tuition and fees coverage, a book allowance, and an annual living expenses stipend. Winners are selected based on academics, service, leadership, and character.

We are excited to announce that two students from Douglas County School District were named 2019 Boettcher Scholars! Etash Kalra from Douglas County High School and Anila Narayana from Rock Canyon High School will both attend the University of Colorado.

Etash also received a Corporate Sponsorship National Merit Scholarship!

"The Boettcher Foundation invests in the promise of Colorado and the potential of Coloradans, and these students represent the very best of our state," said Katie Kramer, president and CEO of the Boettcher Foundation. "We are delighted that they have committed to attending Colorado universities."
