Larimer County Clerk and Recorder Angela Myers announced Feb. 11 that the Colorado County Clerks Association will award $1,000 regional scholarships to deserving Colorado high school seniors this spring. The CCCA has established a scholarship fund to aid outstanding Colorado seniors in furthering their education at any university, college, junior college or technical institution.
“Today’s students are the future of our country. It is always inspiring to play a part in helping the CCCA make this investment in tomorrow,” Myers said.
Scholarship application packets have been sent to all high school counseling offices in Larimer County, and are also available at the Clerk and Recorder’s office, 200 West Oak Street, Fort Collins, during normal business hours.
Selection will be based on the following:
· Completed application
· 3.25 GPA minimum
· Community involvement with an interest in government, business, or political science
· Financial need/hardship
Applications are due in the county clerk’s office no later than April 4. Each district will select a finalist and forward their selection to the CCCA Executive Board. Members of the Executive Board of the County Clerks Association will finalize the scholarship awards by May 1.
“Larimer County has had recipients in the past,” Angela said. “I encourage all qualified students to apply.”
