Applications will be accepted through 4 p.m. Nov. 15 for scholarships awarded to college-bound high school seniors in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.

The Daniels Fund Scholarship Program offers comprehensive, four-year college scholarships that provide financial and personal support focused on helping recipients succeed in college and life. Scholarships can be used at any accredited nonprofit college or university in the United States.

The four-year, annually renewable college scholarships cover up to $25,000 a year in the unmet needs of students after other financial aid, scholarships and an expected family contribution have been applied.

To apply for scholarships, applicants must be a high school senior graduating during the 2020-2021 academic year from a high school in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah or Wyoming. They must be resident of one of the states and a citizen or permanent resident of the United States.

They must earn a minimum of a 3.0 high school grade point average on an unweighted 4.0 scale.

They must earn a minimum SAT math score of 490 and a minimum evidence-based reading and writing score of 490 or a minimum ACT score of 18 in each category. For students who were unable to take the SAT or ACT due to COVID-19 cancellations, they’re eligible to apply with a minimum grade point average of 3.3.

Applicants’ parents or legal guardians must have an adjusted gross income of $85,000 or less on the 2019 tax return on which the applicant appears.
