The Daniels Scholarship Program provides a four-year annually renewable college scholarship for graduating high school seniors in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming who demonstrate exceptional character, leadership, and a commitment to serving their communities. It is a “last dollar” scholarship that pays toward tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and miscellaneous educational expenses. Scholars may attend any nonprofit accredited school in the United States. For more information, visit www.DanielsFund.org/Scholarships.

This year, the Daniels Fund will have a representative at each of the Colorado Council on High School/College Relations Counselor Workshops across the state. Please stop by our table at the workshops for more information. We will also have representatives traveling across Colorado this fall.
