SHERIDAN — Motivated college-bound high school seniors in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming are encouraged to visit DanielsFund.org to apply online for the Daniels Scholarship Program. The application deadline is Nov. 13 at 4 p.m.
“In establishing the Daniels Scholarship Program, cable television pioneer Bill Daniels wanted to seek outstanding young people who possess strength of character, leadership, the passion to succeed, and a commitment to giving back to the community,” explained Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund.
The Daniels Scholarship Program provides the opportunity to obtain a college education at any accredited nonprofit college or university in the United States. Selected scholars are offered resources, encouragement and inspiration far beyond the financial assistance needed to earn a college degree, with the ultimate goal to help Daniels Scholars succeed in college and in life.
The four-year, annually-renewable college scholarship essentially functions as a “full-ride” scholarship at our 24 partner institutions located in our four-state region.
A complete list of partner institutions can be found at DanielsFund.org.
At all other institutions, the Daniels Scholarship functions as a “last dollar” scholarship which covers the unmet need of the student after all other financial aid resources and an expected family contribution have been applied.
To be eligible to apply for a scholarship, students must demonstrate financial need and:
• be a current high school senior graduating during the 2015-2016 academic year from a high school in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah or Wyoming.
• be a current resident of one of these four states and a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.
• earn ACT scores of at least 17 in each category or an SAT math score of at least 400 and critical reading score of at least 440. Writing scores are not required. All test scores must come from a single test. Super scoring is not accepted.
