The Discovery Scholarship was established to support Clear Creek High School graduates that have been accepted to and attend a program granting skills certification or an associate's degree. The renewable 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 will be 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.
