The Daniels Fund announced the names of its 2023 class of Daniels Scholarship Program recipients. 32 Utah high school seniors were selected as 2023 Daniels Scholars. They were among 238 students across Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming accepted into the program.

Daniels Scholars receive up to $100,000 over four years towards their undergraduate degree, depending on financial need. Daniels Scholars may use their scholarship at any accredited nonprofit college or university anywhere in the United States. Students are selected for their strength of character, leadership potential, commitment to serving the community, and academic potential. As the living legacy of Daniels Fund founder Bill Daniels, Daniels Scholars embody the values he most cherished.

“It’s an honor to support the educations of these outstanding young people with such great potential, strong character, and big dreams,” said Hanna Skandera, president & CEO of the Daniels Fund. “We know they will go on to do amazing things and have a tremendous impact on their communities.”

With this year’s announcement, more than 5,000 students have received the Daniels Scholarship. At any given time, nearly 1,000 Daniels Scholars are attending approximately 200 colleges and universities throughout the United States. Since 2000, more than $250 million in scholarships has been awarded through the Daniels Scholarship Program.

Motivated high school seniors graduating in 2024 are encouraged to visit this September to apply online for the Daniels Scholarship Program.
