Lynch Family Legacy Scholarships

The Lynch Family Legacy Scholarships are offered to high school seniors from public or private schools in the Denver and greater Colorado area.  Four renewable scholarships worth up to $24,000 (up to $6,000 / year) are presented to high school senior student-athletes.  Recipients are chosen based on academics, athletics, community involvement, financial need, leadership, and other intangible qualities.  Applicants must participate in a varsity sport their senior year, however, they do not need to be participating in sports at the collegiate level.

All applications must be submitted through this online submission format.  The application process will close on Sunday, March 31, 2024 at 12:00 A.M. MST.  In mid April, ten finalists will be selected to participate in personal interviews.  From that pool, the four recipients will be chosen and awarded the scholarships.
