The Daniels Scholarship is a comprehensive college scholarship that pays toward the costs of tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and miscellaneous educational expenses. It is a “last dollar” scholarship, and therefore secondary to all other grants and scholarships awarded to the scholar. After considering the student’s other scholarships, financial aid (federal, state, and institutional), and any work-study they accept, as well as their Expected Family Contribution (EFC), the Daniels Fund will pay toward the remaining costs of the scholar’s education. The amount of the scholarship is unique to each Daniels Scholar, and can vary from year to year.
Daniels Scholars are selected because they embody the principles and values Bill Daniels defined as hallmarks of the program:
- Strength of character
- Leadership potential
- Commitment to serving their communities
- Academic performance or promise
