History of the Reisher Scholars Program

The Reisher Scholars Program was established by the Reisher Family in 2001 through The Denver Foundation. Roger and Margaret Reisher came from modest means and were the first in their families to attend and graduate college. Appreciating how much their education impacted their lives and success, the Reishers created the program to support students earning their undergraduate degrees.

The Reisher Scholars Program has provided $33.1 million in scholarships to help nearly 2,000 students complete college and pursue their ambitions. More than 380 Reisher Scholars are working to achieve their dreams of a college education here in Colorado.
