Prinsen Family Scholarship

Kaitlin and Andy Prinsen established this permanent endowment to assist students attending Community College of Denver who have emancipated from the foster care system and/or experienced homelessness. As young professionals who moved to Denver a few years ago, they decided to establish the Prinsen Family Scholarship as a way to help give back to their community. Education is very important to Kaitlin and Andy, and through this scholarship, they hope to offer stability to the recipients and a pathway to continue their academic pursuits. The Fund will annually award one or more scholarships.
