History of the League

The Boulder County Latina League was founded as a volunteer non-profit organization in 1999 by a group of professional Latina women who realized the need for scholarships for college-bound and low income Latina/o students. 

Today, students from Boulder Valley School District and St. Vrain Valley School District participate in our scholarship program. Our students are frequently first-generation college students (first in their family to attend college.)

Since its beginning in 1999, BCLL has awarded 390 scholarships, between $750 and $1500 each, totaling over $400,000. 

The University of Colorado and Front Range Community College willingly match our scholarship funds to students attending their colleges. 100% of donations are fully tax deductible.
