College scholarships for young people of exceptional character
and non-traditional students through two distinct programs

BILL DANIELS directed the Daniels Scholarship Program to find promising students who demonstrate strength of character, academic performance or promise, leadership potential, a well-rounded personality, and the potential to contribute to their community.
Starting with the 2012-2013 academic year, the Daniels Scholarship will use an "open application" process. This approach will provide greater access to students interested in applying for the Daniels Scholarship. It allows students to initiate an application themselves, and will streamline the process to make it easier for them to complete and submit an application.
Daniels Scholarships are not full-ride. Instead they are "last dollar" scholarships that cover the unmet needs of the student after all other financial aid resources and the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) have been applied. Amounts are different for each student and can change from year-to-year for the same student.

High schools and youth serving organizations in our 4-state region remain a vital resource to identify and encourage promising students to apply to become a Daniels Scholar. Applicants will also need letters of recommendation from people like you, who know them and can speak to how they exemplify the traits we are seeking.
