Starzer Service Scholarship Program Established in 2012, the Starzer Scholarship has directly supported students for nearly one decade. Starting Fall 2021, the Starzer Service Scholarship will support a community of scholars defined by focused programming, community building, and an array of support services. Founded by Mike and Patty Starzer, both Colorado School of Mines alumni, the Starzer Service Scholarship attracts and cultivates humble, mission-driven servant leaders. Recipients belong to a close-knit campus community focused on humility, meaningful service, and mission impact. Community programming includes learning sessions with nonprofit leaders, skill-building workshops on communication and fundraising, and service opportunities.


Preference is given to graduating high school students from the state of Colorado, but out of state and International students will be considered and are encouraged to apply. Compelling scholarship candidates demonstrate a commitment to community service, outreach, or mission-based work. To remain eligible for the scholarship, Scholars must maintain a 2.85 cumulative GPA as well as complete a meaningful service project with a local nonprofit or philanthropic organization. Scholars are further expected to actively participate in community programming and model humility, compassion, and care for others on campus.
