Daniels Scholarship now is accepting applications
High school seniors in Colorado are encouraged to apply for Daniels Scholarship
The Daniels Fund is accepting applications for scholarships to be awarded in spring. High school seniors in Colorado should ask their high school counselors for information or visit http://www.danielsfund.org. The application deadline is Nov. 30.
In establishing the Daniels Fund, cable pioneer Bill Daniels directed the Daniels Scholarship Program to seek out promising students who demonstrate strength of character, leadership potential, academic performance or promise, a well-rounded personality and the potential to contribute to their community.
Students also must demonstrate financial need. Daniels Scholarships are not full-ride scholarships; they cover the unmet need of the student. The scholarship amount is determined after all other financial aid resources and an expected family contribution have been applied.
Students must be nominated by a referral agency, which includes all area high schools plus designated youth-serving organizations that help in the nomination process. A list of those high schools and youth-serving organizations is posted on the Daniels Fund website.
