Fountain Valley Scholars is a non-profit organization that awards scholarship money to high-achieving and eligible seniors from all high schools in the Fountain-Fort Carson and Widefield school districts to help them attend the college or university of their choice. Over the past 25 years, we have awarded more than $350,000 to 550 college-bound Fountain and Widefield students.
Our application process is extensive and rewarding for both the scholarship selection committee and the students. Students must complete an involved application which includes highlighting all of their activities and an essay. The list is whittled down and the committee conducts interviews with each finalist.
An awards ceremony is hosted each spring featuring some musical selections from the scholarship winners. The ceremony rotates between the school districts.
Our biggest fundraiser is our annual golf tournament at Cheyenne Shadows Golf Course. In the summer of 2018, we raised more than $17,000! A huge thank you to the sponsors, donors, and team participants for making each year successful. Other fundraisers include the Widefield Cookout each fall and miscellaneous small fundraisers at all schools throughout the school year. Check our Fundraisers page for more information on these activities! All money raised goes toward the scholarships.
