Application period open for 2020 Daniels Scholarship

Posted

The Daniels Fund has opened its annual application process for the Daniels Scholarship Program. Students must turn in an application by Nov. 15 at 4 p.m., according to a news release for the organization.

The Daniels Fund has given out more than $188 million in scholarships since launching the program in 2000.

This four-year, annually renewable college scholarship is a “last dollar” scholarship which covers the unmet need of the student after all other financial aid resources and their Expected Family Contribution have been applied, the news release said. The scholarships can be used at any accredited college or university in the United States.

The eligibility requirements for the scholarship include:

• Be a current high school senior graduating during the 2019/2020 academic year from a high school in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, or Wyoming.

• Be a current resident of one of these four states and a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.

Earn a minimum 3.0 high school GPA (on an unweighted 4.0 scale).

Earn a minimum SAT Math score of 490 and a minimum Evidence-Based Reading & Writing score of 490, or a minimum ACT score of 18 in each category (writing score not required). Super scoring is not accepted.

The applicant’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s) must have an Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $85,000 or less on a 2018 tax return on which the applicant appears. For claimed dependents beyond the applicant, there is an allowance for an additional $5,000 for each dependent and $15,000 for each additional dependent in college full-time during the 2019/2020 academic year.
