The scholarship is available to Colorado students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year of undergraduate study at a State supported institution of Higher Education. The scholarship was established to honor a past CFMA president and former Deputy Director of the Colorado State Lottery who lost his life while serving the citizens of Colorado.

We will be auctioning off themed baskets this year, and are asking for basket donations for the auction. It would be wonderful to have folks representing all of our departments or Higher Education institutions donate baskets for this fundraising effort.

Ideas for a themed basket include:
• Coffee lovers - ground coffee, cups, Starbucks card
• Movie night - DVD or movie ticket, movie candy, popcorn
• Pasta lovers - your favorite sauce, noodles, Italian seasoning, Italian recipe book
• Golf lovers - golf balls, visor, gloves, book about golf
