RMRC is sponsoring a scholarship program for current high school seniors who have relocated to Denver. The one-time award of $1,500 for each scholarship will be presented to two area high school seniors. The award will be sent directly to the college (2-year or 4-year) or university that the student will be attending to assist with tuition or any other applicable expenses.
RMRC will select a scholarship winner based on the strength of the eligible applicant’s total completed application that includes academic performance, extra-curricular activities, and an essay addressing the impact relocation has had on their life and impactful skills or life experiences developed as a result of the relocation.

My name is Davis Cowper, and originally I lived in the suburbs of Washington D.C. in Fairfax Virginia, attending Woodson High School. There, I met great friends in a great community, but my family needed a change. We looked at the map, and ultimately decided to move closer to family out here in Colorado. After an educating and adventurous journey across the country during late July through early August of 2019, we settled in Thornton just north of Denver. Since then, I’ve adapted to a new learning model through our worldwide situation these past few years, developing my school’s yearbook across the time I’ve attended. I’ve expanded my skillset in language with a continuation of my Spanish classes, and I am currently in our school’s AP Spanish program. Above all of these skills, I’ve taken an interest in game development and design. More specifically, the manner in which stories are told and lives are depicted in games, all while creating worlds that inspire friendships for millions across the world. I will be majoring in Games and Simulation at Miami University of Ohio for these reasons, and intend to accomplish as much as I can to work towards a career in AAA development. Despite the hardships behind the move, coming to Colorado led me on a better path for my life ahead.
Hello, my name is Chinwe Onwere, and I am a current senior at Holy Family High School! I moved from Corvallis, Oregon to Broomfield, Colorado during the summer of 2019, starting my sophomore year. I enjoy reading novels, writing poetry, and being outside in nature. I am planning on majoring in biology and environmental science in college, with a possible pre-med track. In the future, I want to study abroad and also participate in service work especially if I decide to go the pre-med route. I am still unsure of whereI am attending, but my two top choices right now are University of Michigan and Case Western. A fun fact about me is that I have lived in all the states that start with O!
