Seniors urged to apply for Daniels scholarship

Sep 9, 2013 - From staff reports

Motivated college-bound high school seniors in Wyoming are encouraged to visit DanielsFund.org to apply for the Daniels Scholarship Program. The application deadline is Nov. 15.

Each year, roughly 250 new Daniels Scholars are selected from the thousands who apply. They go through a rigorous application, interview and selection process.

To be eligible to apply for the Daniels Scholarship Program, students must be current high school seniors graduating during the 2013-2014 academic year from a high school in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah or Wyoming.

They must be a current resident of one of those four states and at the time of application be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States. They also must demonstrate financial need and meet other requirements of the scholarship.

Daniels Scholarships are "last dollar" and are intended to 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. Daniels Scholarships pay toward a student's required college expenses, including tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and miscellaneous educational expenses.
