Each year, donor generosity enables the foundation to award scholarships to UCHealth northern Colorado employees interested in furthering career-related skills. For our 2020–21 scholarship cycle, $85,000 was awarded to 47 recipients.

Since 2010, the foundation has awarded $475,000 in scholarships to 381 UCHealth employees.

Employee scholarships make a tangible, positive difference in our community.

“I cannot express how thankful I am to have your help in supporting my further graduate education in clinical mental health counseling. It is my passion to pursue this degree so that I can work with first responders providing therapy and training that will help us to retain the quality providers we have invested in. These providers are full of expertise because of their experiences. They have spent their lives sacrificing and helping others. It is overdue that we help them be their best. I am grateful to have the support of UCHealth to help offset some of the cost of this education so that I can do more of what I love for our people.”
— Jeanette Jennings, emergency medical technician
