Daniels Scholarship Program
We are excited to announce that the online application for the Daniels Scholarship Program will be open from October 1 to November 29, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. MST!
Approximately 230 new Daniels Scholars will be selected for the Class of 2019.
The Daniels Scholarship Program provides a four-year annually renewable college scholarship for high school seniors from Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming who demonstrate character, leadership, and service. The Daniels Scholarship Program offers resources, encouragement, and inspiration far beyond the financial assistance needed to earn a bachelor's degree. Our goal is to help each Daniels Scholar succeed in college and ultimately become independent, successful in a rewarding career, and actively engaged in their community.
For full details on the scholarship and to apply, visit our website at DanielsFund.org/Scholarships, where you will also find answers to frequently asked questions and additional promotional materials that can be downloaded and shared, including a 20-minute video with detailed information about the program and how to apply, and content that can be used in e-newsletters and communications to students and their families.
