This is such a great scholarship, but it is so much more than that! It also provides students with excellent resources and a great mentoring program through all of their years of college! The Daniels Scholarship does not have a specific amount because it is tailored to each individual, but it will cover all unmet need for students for 4 years! Read more about it below:
The Daniels Scholarship is an exciting and challenging program that provides the opportunity to obtain a four-year college education at any accredited nonprofit college or university in the United States, complete with financial and personal support throughout the journey. The Daniels Scholarship Program offers resources, encouragement, and inspiration far beyond the financial assistance needed to earn a college degree. Our goal is not only to help Daniels Scholars succeed in college, but to ensure that they thrive beyond their years in college.
The Daniels Fund is looking for motivated students who demonstrate: strong character, leadership potential, academic performance or promise, a well-rounded personality, and a desire to the serve the community. If this sounds like you, start your application now! There is a financial need component to this scholarship so you will need to fill out some forms to determine if you are eligible before you start your application. Again, start your application now!
