The Pinnacol Foundation is accepting applications for scholarships for children whose parents have been seriously injured or killed in work-related accidents, regardless of insurance carrier.

The deadline to apply for the 2014-2015 school year is April 15.

The average scholarship is $3,500, and the funds can be used at any accredited institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

To qualify, 16- to 25-year-old students must be the natural, adopted, stepchild or full dependent of a worker who was seriously injured or killed in a compensable work-related accident while employed by a Colorado-based employer.

Awards are based on academic achievement, financial need, community service and extracurricular activities.
