PRSEA Scholarships

PRSEA (Poudre Retired School Employees Association)

PRSEA Scholarships have been awarded to graduating Poudre School District seniors for 32 years.

Money for these scholarships is generously donated each year by members of the Poudre Retired School Employees Association and other members of the Fort Collins community wishing to support deserving students who plan to attend Front Range Community College.

2021/22 award winners will each receive $3,600 for the 2021-22 school year which can be used for the cost of tuition and additional fees.

To date, more than $100,000 will have been awarded by PRSEA to 80 PSD graduates planning to attend Front Range Community College.

The Matthew G. Bailey Memorial Scholarship is awarded to one PSD graduating senior each year who will be attending Front Range Community College. The $4,000 Matthew G. Bailey Memorial Scholarship honors Matt, his thirst for learning and his interest in other cultures. He graduated from Fort Collins High in 1987.
