Scholarship overview: https://www.danielsfund.org/scholarships/daniels-scholarship-program/overview
Each year, recipients receive up to $100,000 to be applied at any two- or four-year, nonprofit, accredited college or university in the United States, depending on financial need.
New for this year! To be respectful of students’ and recommenders’ time, the application has been split into two phases this year:
Phase 1: September 15 – October 15– Students share how they spend their time, volunteer experience, academic information, employment information, and answer multiple-choice questions. After this phase, we will notify students whether or not they are moving forward to the Semi-Finalist phase.
Phase 2: Semi-Finalist October 24 – November 15 – Semi-Finalists write essay questions and provide a recommendation and social media information.
