Postsecondary education has become so expensive that many families can longer afford it. To ensure that every high-potential student has access to postsecondary education, the Mapleton Education Foundation provides scholarships to high-need, high-potential Mapleton students. Most scholarship recipients are the first in their families to attend college.
Scholarship awards range from $1,000 – $5,000 per year for 2-4 years. Important partners like the Metropolitan State University of Denver, Front Range Community College Foundation and Colorado School of Mines provide matching funds for Mapleton Education Foundation scholarship recipients.
In addition to post-secondary scholarships, the Foundation also supports a post-secondary transition program, which provides Mapleton graduates with additional support throughout their first year in college. An advisor provides one-on-one guidance in areas of financial planning, housing, transportation, academics, and social-emotional support. The program has been shown to more than double post-secondary enrollment rates in participating schools.
