Each year PEAK awards a $10,000 scholarship and new laptop to a graduating Senior pursuing a STEM degree from KIPP Denver Collegiate High School, right down the street from PEAK in the Valverde neighborhood.  This year’s applicants were really impressive, so much so that we have decided to award TWO scholarships!

We are pleased to announce the 2021 KIPP Scholarship Winners:

  • Bryan Torres, pursuing an engineering degree with a focus on aerospace from CU Boulder
  • Yareli Macias-Sanchez, pursuing a bio-medical engineering degree from Brown University

More about PEAK’s KIPP Scholarship
This is the 11th year of our KIPP Scholarship!  As an organization, we have a broad range of volunteerism, but we have put great energy and focus towards an area that our team holds in the highest esteem, Education and Student Well-Being. Specifically, Youth Education and well-being.  Our work with KIPP Denver Collegiate High School includes student mentorship, an annual Career Day and the annual Scholarship.

Each year we receive applications from some amazing young men and women from KIPP Collegiate, and none of this would be possible without a steadfast commitment from the teachers and administrators of the school.  Here are a few basics about the Annual Scholarship:

  • Open to graduating seniors pursuing study in a STEM related field
  • $10,000 scholarship, or $1,250 per semester
  • PEAK will gift the winning student a laptop before the start of their freshman year
