U.S.: Daniels Fund now Accepting Class of 2024 Scholarship Applicants

Applications are now open for the prestigious Daniels Scholarship Program.

Every year, the Daniels Fund grants scholarships to excellent students from Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming to any two- or four-year nonprofit, accredited institution or university in the United States. Depending on the school of choice, the scholarships may pay all connected expenditures.

Selected students exhibit great character, leadership, and a dedication to service to their communities. The foundation aims to award approximately 200 scholarships to Class of 2024 graduates in March.

Applications close Oct. 15 at 4 p.m.

“Bill Daniels believed a great education can be game-changing for young people with great potential, strong character, and big dreams,” Daniels Fund President and CEO Hanna Skandera said in a news release. “We look forward to supporting the next generation of leaders, and the positive impact they will make with this opportunity.”

When Daniels died in 2000, he left $1.1 billion to establish his namesake fund. According to the statement, the fund has distributed more than $250 million to over 5,000 academics since its inception.

For some partner schools in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, or Wyoming, the scholarship is a full ride. The Daniels Fund website has a list of current partners.

Students attending a non-partner school inside the fund’s four-state territory can receive $30,000 in educational expenditures over four years, while students attending a non-partner school outside of the four-state region can receive up to $100,000 in educational expenses over four years.

Daniels Scholars also receive a laptop and career development, networking and leadership development opportunities.

Applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be a graduating high school senior.
  • Be a resident of Daniels Fund’s four-state region.
  • Be a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.
  • Earn a minimum grade point average of 3.0 in high school on an unweighted 4.0 scale.
  • Earn a minimum SAT math score of 490 and a minimum evidence-based reading and writing score of 490, or a minimum ACT score of 18 in each category (writing score not required).
