Deadline for Daniels Scholarships Nov. 29
High school seniors in Colorado who demonstrate character, leadership, and service are encouraged to apply for the Daniels Scholarship Program by the Nov. 29 deadline by visiting www.DanielsFund.org/Apply.
“In establishing the Daniels Scholarship, cable pioneer Bill Daniels wanted to seek out outstanding young people who possess tremendous strength of character, the passion to succeed, a willingness to work hard, and a commitment to giving back to the community,” explained Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund.
Each year, approximately 250 new Daniels Scholars are selected from among thousands who apply. They go through a rigorous application, interview, and selection process. The reward of being selected for the program is the opportunity to obtain a 4-year college education at any nonprofit college or university in the United States, complete with financial and personal support throughout the college journey.
To be eligible to apply for a Daniels Scholarship students must be current high school seniors graduating during the 2012-2013 academic year from a high school in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, or Wyoming. They must be a current resident of one of those states and at the time of application be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the United States. They must also demonstrate financial need and other requirements of the scholarship.
The Daniels Scholarship is not “full ride”, but is supplemental to all other financial aid resources, including Pell Grants, available to the student. After other financial resources have been applied, the Daniels Scholarship covers all required tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and a variety of other miscellaneous expenses. Students also receive a laptop computer and a printer.
