The Lynch Family Legacy Scholarships are offered to high school seniors from public or private schools in the Denver and greater Colorado area. Four renewable scholarships worth $24,000 ($6,000 / year) are presented to high school senior student-athletes. Recipients are chosen based on academics, athletics, community involvement, financial need, leadership, and other intangible qualities. Applicants must participate in a varsity sport their senior year, however they do not need to be participating in sports at the collegiate level.
