The Daniels Fund announced its 2024 class of Daniels Scholarship Program recipients. 209 high school seniors across Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming were selected as 2024 Daniels Scholars, including 144 students from Colorado.

Daniels Scholars may use their scholarship at any accredited nonprofit college or university anywhere in the United States. Daniels Scholars have their full cost of attendance covered at partner schools in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming and up to $100,000 over four years if they choose to attend a school outside the four-state region. Students are selected for their strength of character, leadership potential, commitment to serving the community, and academic potential. As the living legacy of Daniels Fund founder Bill Daniels, Daniels Scholars embody the values he most cherished.

“We are thrilled to support the educational aspirations of this tremendous group of young people,” said Hanna Skandera, president & CEO of the Daniels Fund. “They represent the next generation of leaders and we can’t wait to see the amazing things they will accomplish with this opportunity.”

With this year’s announcement, more than 5,000 students have received the Daniels Scholarship. At any given time, nearly 1,000 Daniels Scholars are attending approximately 200 colleges and universities throughout the United States. Since 2000, more than $260 million in scholarships has been awarded through the Daniels Scholarship Program.

Motivated high school seniors graduating in 2025 are encouraged to visit this September to apply online for the Daniels Scholarship Program.
