Boettcher Scholars will participate in one or two service projects per year in the Boulder community. Scholars will choose and organize the projects keeping in mind that they're intended to build sustainable connections with Boulder organizations.

The University of Colorado Law School has an agreement with Undergraduate Enrichment Programs (SUEP) and the Presidents Leadership Class to provide law school networking events. To encourage and aid in the application process for Boettcher Scholars, the Law School will do the following:

  • Provide an application fee waiver to each interested applicant, for a $65 savings. Applicants should contact the admissions office at lawadmin@colorado.edu to request a fee waiver prior to submitting their application.
  • Guarantee automatic admission for any scholar applicant with at least a score of 164 on the LSAT and a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2. An automatic two-year deferral is available for anyone who is admitted to the Law School and then participates in either the Peace Corps or Teach for America.
  • Offer a special information session for scholars at the Law School to introduce these students to our community and give them the opportunity to talk with Law School faculty, students, and administrators.
  • Invite interested scholars to attend special events at the Law School throughout the school year, including special speakers and conferences.

The JD application is available at lsac.org beginning October 1 of each year. Please contact Kristine Jackson, Assistant Dean for Admissions and Financial Aid, for any questions at kristine.jackson@colorado.edu or 303-492-7085.

Fifth-year funding is available for Boettcher Scholars toward the first year of a CU Boulder graduate school program or a concurrent degree. Contact Scholarship Services for more information.

For those interested in research, scholarly or creative work, we provide Undergraduate Research Funding coaching, a research workshop series, and opportunities to present or volunteer at the UEP research conference.

Boettcher Scholars are eligible to take Norlin Scholars courses including NRLN 2000, Constructions of Knowledge and NRLN 3500, Construction of Knowledge in the Fields.

As a Boettcher scholar, you’re eligible to apply for educational enrichment and/or international education grants from the Boettcher Foundation. Information will be sent directly from the Boettcher Foundation each semester but the first step is to take the Scholar Grant Webinar, found on the Boettcher Foundation website. It will prepare you in advance for applying for these grants. SUEP will have an info session each semester too.
