About Us


The Fremont County Engineering Scholarship Foundation, Inc. (FCESF) was incorporated in 1997 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational and charitable organization to award scholarships to students pursuing an accredited engineering degree.

Our goal

To provide renewable scholarships totaling $2,400.00 to each selected award winner, distributed over eight semesters. Applicants must be a graduate of one of the three high schools (Cañon City HS, Florence HS, or Cotopaxi HS) located in Fremont County, Colorado who will be striving to obtain an engineering degree from an accredited four-year college or university. Applicants apply through their school's counseling department and members of the FCESF Selection Committee review the applications and make suggestions for consideration to the Board of Directors. To be eligible for renewal in subsequent years, the student must maintain a "C" average or better in at least 12 credit hours per semester while working toward their engineering degree.

History of the Fremont County Engineering Scholarship Foundation, Inc.

The Foundation was formed by a group of local professionals who banded together with the mission to financially assist Fremont County high school students in reaching their collegiate degree goals. Nearly every year since its inception, FCESF holds its fundraising banquet in February, during National Engineers Week, to introduce high school students to the wide variety of career opportunities available within the engineering profession.
