Discovery Scholarship

Congratulations to our 2023 awardees!

The Discovery Scholarship Fund provides financial support to Clear Creek High School graduates that have been accepted to a skills certification program or an Associate's degree. The goal of the scholarship is to help students graduate with a minimum of debt or debt-free. 

The renewable Discovery Scholarship will fund 100% of a student's net cost for tuition, fees, and books for up to two academic years and a maximum of $10,000. Preference is given to graduating CCHS seniors, students with a history of community engagement or volunteerism, and those that demonstrate a financial need. 

Funding beyond the first grading period requires a minimum cumulative post-secondary grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.  Payments for tuition, books and fees will be made directly to the school or college.  Students are expected to return to Clear Creek High School to share their post-secondary experience with current students during the final year of their studies.

A student’s net cost is defined as the school or college’s cost of tuition, fees and books minus the grants, other scholarships, tuition waivers and other gift aid a student receives.  

The scholarship applications are reviewed by the Clear Creek Schools Foundation Scholarship Committee and the awardee is announced on Clear Creek High School Senior Night.

Exploration Fund

The Exploration Fund supports Clear Creek High School students exploring post-secondary pathways by paying a student’s direct enrollment cost toward a workforce certificate or college credits. 

This fund also supports educators working in career-connected learning through professional development.

We are grateful to Henderson Mine, in partnership with Freeport-McMoRan Foundation for their generosity in launching this fund.
