Gunnison Memorial Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,500
Awards Available: 3

Time creates traditions, and after 50 years, the Gunnison Memorial Scholarship certainly qualifies locally as a fine one. The scholarship was established in 1967 to provide financial assistance with higher education costs to Gunnison Watershed students with financial need. Throughout those years, 173 graduating seniors have received both a financial and a morale boost from the scholarship.

The Fund was established to honor the memories of Tom Williams and Sandy Zeigler, members of the GHS Class of '67, as well as others who have been memorialized with gifts to the Fund throughout the years.

After being administered by a Board of selected community representatives for 45 years, the Fund was transferred to The Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley in 2012 for stewardship and management of its assets and the scholarship application and awards process. Following the intent of the founders, the review committee continues with representatives of the organizations named in the original Articles of Incorporation. Scholarship guidelines reflect original intent which is to serve students in the Gunnison Watershed School District who show need for help with the tuition costs of higher education.

Scholarship awardees are selected on the basis of financial need and a commitment to extend a helping hand to someone else in need sometime during their lifetime. A wide variety of scholastic goals of the student applying are acceptable, including vocational or technical education, community college or 4-year college or university.
