The Bootstrap Scholarship Foundation scholarships will be paid to the college/ university where the recipient plans to attend. The money will be used to pay for the studentís tuition, books and matriculation fees and will not be used for personal items. If for any reason the recipient does not attend the college/university, the scholarship money will be returned to the Bootstrap Scholarship Program Foundation so that scholarship money may be awarded to another applicant.

Applicants for the Bootstrap Scholarship Program Foundation scholarship must be nominated by a teacher. The teacher should submit the nomination of the student to the school counselor to complete the application with an unofficial transcript.
