The Scholarship Committee is thrilled to announce that our Board of Directors has authorized our committee to implement a pilot scholarship program for 2017/2018.  We will continue to support our local students with the $2,000 annual scholarship awards to Fort Lewis College, Southwest Community College and San Juan College.  In addition, we have outreached to in-state and out-of-state accredited colleges or universities not to exceed a total of $20,000 or 10 full time scholarships.  First preference will awarded to students enrolled at accredited local colleges ( Fort Lewis College, Southwest Community College, San Juan College), second priority will be for in-state (Colorado) accredited colleges or universities and lastly to accredited out-of-state colleges and universities.

 

We are proud to have Ariel Fender and Chris Walton returning to Fort Lewis College and welcome Isabelle Bonecutter and Alyana Frasier who are joining the SkyHawk  family.  Our test pilot students are Aspen Harwig (Colorado Mesa University), Molly Black (Colorado Christian University), and Gabby Dodd (Sierra Nevada College).  We are so excited that our scholarships have increased which is just another way of expressing our gratitude to those agencies that continue to protect each and everyone of us 365 days a year.
