Grants & Scholarships
Over the last few years, the Foundation has provided nearly $50,000.00 to students to participate in the many academic and extracurricular programs at Golden High School as well as performance based scholarships to help students get started in college.
Through faculty members, Golden High students can submit written requests to the Foundation for financial support for academic programs such as AP Test fees and extracurricular activities such as participation at a national drumline contest to be held in Ohio. The Foundation receives numerous funding requests each month and requires that the requesting student have a teacher recommendation accompany their request.

Our merit based Alumni Foundation Scholarship Award Winners are exceptional Golden High graduates who choose to continue their education at a Colorado based college or trade school. Our winners submit extensive applications to the Foundation for the review of the Board. Scholarships are awarded based upon academic record, application essay and faculty recommendations.
