The Daniels Scholarship is an exciting and challenging program that provides the opportunity to obtain a four-year college education at any accredited nonprofit college or university in the United States, complete with financial and personal support throughout the journey. The Daniels Scholarship Program offers resources, encouragement, and inspiration far beyond the financial assistance needed to earn a college 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.
Every year, Daniels Scholars are selected from our four-state region of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Since 2000, Daniels Scholars have attended more than 400 colleges and universities in 49 states.
As of March 2019, the Daniels Scholarship Program has provided more than $188 million in undergraduate scholarships to over 4,160 students. *check back later for updates on scholarship availability.
