The Glenwood Hot Springs Higher Education Scholarship is an annual endowment of $10,000, split between several worthy recipients and is pro-rated per semester over the course of the schooling. The resort’s Board of Directors established the scholarship because it deeply believes in the value of education and it’s a way to acknowledge the role student employees play in the success of the hot springs resort.
“This is the first formal job for many of our student employees and we work hard to guide them through the basic tenants of being responsible, reliable and committed team members,” John Bosco, Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer for Glenwood Hot Springs Resort, said. For students it’s an opportunity to earn a paycheck and build a foundational work ethic that employers tend to value and reward, including Glenwood Hot Springs.
The successful candidates are usually Glenwood Hot Springs employees who typically excel at school and in their jobs at the world-famous hot springs resort. This year is no exception. The three winners are well-rounded dynamos with bright futures ahead of them.
