Pinnacol Foundation Scholarship

Description

We know that when a parent is seriously injured in an accident, life suddenly becomes a lot harder for the whole family. That's why we created our scholarship program ÔÇö to ensure that despite things beyond your control, you still have an opportunity to pursue your academic goals. 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 $4,700 per student per year, and may only be used for the costs of attending school. Be the natural child, adopted child, stepchild or full dependent of a worker who was injured or killed in a compensable work-related accident during the course and scope of employment with a Colorado-based employer and was entitled to receive benefits under the Colorado WorkersÔÇÖ Compensation Act. It doesnÔÇÖt matter which insurance company covered your parentÔÇÖs claim. Be between the ages of 16 and 25 at the time of the application deadline. Have and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. Have a high school diploma or GED, or be a high school senior. Submit a complete application. Reapply each year. Most recent cumulative grade transcript (does not have to be official): high school transcript, GED certificate or college transcript. Student Aid Report (SAR) from completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Information about your volunteer, extracurricular and employment experiences. Documentation of your parent's workplace injury, including a First Report of Injury and a Final Admission of Liability (if the claim is closed) or a General Admission of Liability (if the claim is still open). These are official insurance documents. If your parent's injury was fatal, an official death certificate is required. If you have a sibling who has previously applied for the scholarship and supplied this information, you do not need to submit these documents.
