We are excited to announce that the online application for the Daniels Scholarship Program will be open from October 1 to November 15, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. MST!
The Daniels Scholarship Program provides the opportunity for highly motivated students to earn a bachelor’s degree that helps them build a successful career and rewarding life. Daniels Scholars are honest, respectful, self-reliant, and compassionate. They are proud Americans who value our free enterprise system and are prepared to give the world their very best shot.
The Daniels Scholarship is a “last dollar” scholarship which covers educational expenses, after considering other financial aid and the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Daniels Scholars may attend any nonprofit, accredited college or university in the United States. If a scholar chooses to attend one of the Daniels Fund’s 25 partner schools, the Daniels Fund will cover the student’s EFC in addition to the costs listed above. For more about partner schools, visit www.DanielsFund.org/PartnerSchools.
