This coming fall, the Brighton Youth Commission's Andrea Donlucas will be attending Colorado State University on a four-year, full-tuition scholarship from the Boettcher Scholarship Program, a merit-based academic scholarship awarded to graduating Colorado high school seniors.
Annually, more than 1,500 students apply to be named one of the 42 Boettcher Scholars. Beginning with the class of 2022, the number of Boettcher Scholars increased to 50 per year. The scholarship aims to support rising Coloradans and their potential to positively impact communities across the state.
“I am so grateful for this opportunity,” said Donlucas. “The Boettcher Scholarship not only covers the financial side of undergraduate school, but it also provides growth and educational opportunities for scholars. I am so excited to become part of this community.”
Donlucas has been a member of the Brighton Youth Commission since 2019 and has also served on Youth on City Boards. She will be graduating from Brighton High School on May 25.
