McKee Wellness Foundation supports the northern Colorado community through education, patient care, community programs, and clinical support. Through the generosity of donors, the Foundation maintains various scholarships to assist local students.

The scholarship selection process evaluates each applicant’s involvement within their school and/or workplace, service to their community, and involvement in extracurricular activities. We understand that applicants may face a variety of barriers to higher education, so we also evaluate one’s resiliency and their ability to overcome obstacles. Scholarship applicants must submit three letters of recommendation. These may be from teachers, employers, coaches, mentors, counselors, and/or volunteer work supervisors. Please view the scholarships we offer below**.

The scholarship application process will open February 1, 2024 and will close March 31, 2024. The recipients will be announced in May of 2024.

We encourage high school seniors, adult learners, veterans, and Banner NOCO employees (and their immediate family members) to apply. Please email or call 970-617-5975 with any questions.

**Scholarships will be awarded up to $5,000 for the 2024-2025 academic year.
