College scholarships for highly motivated students through two distinct programs

Daniels Scholarship Program

Partner School Option

The Daniels Scholarship is a comprehensive college scholarship that pays toward the costs of tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and miscellaneous educational expenses. It is a "last dollar" scholarship, and therefore secondary to all other grants and scholarships awarded to the scholar. After considering the student's other scholarships, financial aid (federal, state, and institutional), and any work-study they accept, as well as their Expected Family Contribution (EFC), the Daniels Fund will pay toward the remaining costs of the scholar's education. The amount of the scholarship is unique to each Daniels Scholar, and can vary from year to year.

Partner School Option

The Daniels Fund has partnerships with 25 of the most commonly selected colleges and universities in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. If a scholar chooses to attend one of these institutions, the Daniels Scholarship will also cover their EFC. Scholars may attend any nonprofit accredited school in the country, but there is a financial advantage to attending a partner school, as the EFC can be significant and may vary each year.
