Many Aurora Public Schools high school seniors have earned major scholarships and other financial awards to attend college in the fall. Here are some of the highlights of this year’s scholarship recipients:
Yeon Choi, Rangeview High, earned a $40,000 scholarship to Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (RMCAD) for her photography portfolio. This scholarship will pay half of her tuition and is the largest scholarship RMCAD offers.
The Aurora Public Schools Education Foundation awards five $4,000 scholarships to one student at each APS high school. The scholarship is funded by the “Paving the Way to Success” campaign. The APS community members purchase engraved bricks and glass wall panels at the Professional
Learning and Conference Center to raise funds for the scholarships. Congratulations to Winsome Lewis, Hinkley; Janet Mensah, William Smith; Hannah Robinson, Rangeview; Michael Sihavong, Gateway; Joseph Soto, Aurora Central.
Rangeview’s Nina De La Rosa won a $10,000 Comcast Leadership & Achievers scholarship. This program recognizes students who serve as models for their fellow students and are catalysts for positive change in their communities.
Twelve APS students earned the Daniels Fund and Gates Millennium scholarships. The Daniels Fund selects high school seniors who have demonstrated strong character and a determination to succeed in life. The scholarship covers all required tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies and a variety of other miscellaneous expenses. The Gates Millennium Scholarship recognizes students with outstanding academic performance. It covers unmet financial need to attend any college or university.
