What is the Daniels Fund Scholarship?
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. Every year, Daniels Scholars are selected from our four-state region of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Daniels Scholars currently attend more than 200 colleges and universities in 45 states. As of June 2016, the Daniels Scholarship Program has provided nearly $138 million in undergraduate scholarships to nearly 3,500 students.
Additionally, Pinnacle High School Seniors have received $2,281,290 in scholarship awards and 74% of students have applied to or been accepted to a 2 or 4 year program
