UTAH – The Daniels Fund is now accepting applications for scholarships to be awarded in spring of 2012. High school seniors in Utah should ask their high school counselors for information, or visit the Daniels Fund website. The application deadline is Nov. 30, 2011.
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 must also demonstrate financial need. Daniels Scholarships are not full-ride. Instead, 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 (all area high schools plus designated youth serving organizations that assist in the nomination process). A list of those high schools and youth serving organizations is posted on the Daniels Fund website.
Bill Daniels, who owned the American Basketball Association’s Utah Stars, established the Daniels Fund to operate the Daniels Fund Scholarship Program and the Daniels Fund Grants Program in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming.
