Follett Endowed Scholarship
Robert and Nancy Follett have established this scholarship to remove financial barriers and open doors to higher education for students who are the first generation in their families to attend college. Recognizing that a college education can lead to better careers and a brighter future, the Follett Scholarship will cover the full cost of in-district tuition, books, and fees to a student who is pursuing an Associate Degree at the Summit Campus of Colorado Mountain College. Eligibility: Eligible applicants must be enrolled or planning to enroll as a full-time, Associate degree-seeking student at Colorado Mountain College at the Summit Campus (Breckenridge or Dillon) and be Summit County residents. Applicants must be first generation college students and demonstrate dedication and motivation to achieve a higher education. The Follett Scholarship award will be based on financial need. Award Amount: One award of $2,375 per academic year for tuition, books, and fees. Disbursement will be made to the student’s CMC account. The award recipient must enroll for two out of three semesters. If the student does not re-enroll after a one semester absence, the scholarship will be forfeited. The student may reapply for future funding, but no priority is given to previous recipients.
