Evelyn & Richard Boggs Tribute Scholarship

Evelyn & Richard Boggs, longtime Leadville residents and educators, had a tremendous impact on the lives of the thousands of students who entered their classrooms. Inspired by their dedication to education and passion for teaching and learning, their good friend John T. McDonough created the Evelyn & Richard Boggs Tribute Scholarship in their honor. John’s career as a mining engineer provided him with an opportunity to work around the globe. These experiences reinforced the essential foundations of education that begin in the classroom, with teachers like Evelyn and Richard, who inspired and instilled curiosity in their students. This scholarship is intended to help students achieve their educational goals in science related fields, become better citizens, and contribute to building a better world.
Eligibility: Full time student with a 2.5 GPA or higher and pursuing a degree in a STEM related program.
