Scholarship and Other College Information

  • Don’t forget to research and then apply for colleges that you are interested in! Deadlines are before usually before December 1st.
  • Go to under the Counseling— at the bottom of the page is all the counseling and college/scholarship links. Tons of valuable information to help prepare for the next level of education.
  • Just a reminder about scholarships. Sometimes they can be a scam and you need to be aware and careful about that.  A good rule is “If they ask for you to send money or they guarantee you the scholarship” then it is probably a scam.
  • Boys – remember to register for selective service. After you register please print a copy for verification.

We are excited to announce that the online application for the Daniels Scholarship Program will be open from Thursday, October 1 to Sunday, November 15, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. MST!

The Daniels Scholarship Program provides the opportunity for highly motivated students to earn a bachelor’s degree that helps them build a successful career and rewarding life. Daniels Scholars demonstrate exceptional character, leadership, and a commitment to serving their communities. Bill Daniels would also want his scholars to be proud Americans who value our free enterprise system and are prepared to give the world their very best shot.

The Daniels Scholarship Program offers a four-year college scholarship that provides financial and personal support focused on helping Daniels Scholars succeed in college, and in life. The scholarship is unique to each student and varies depending on their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and their choice of school. The scholarship pays up to $25,000 per year toward the student’s unmet need, after applying their EFC, other scholarships, and financial aid. Daniels Scholars may attend any accredited college or university in the United States.

Below is a list of eligibility requirements:

  • Be a graduating high school senior in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, or Wyoming.
  • Be a resident of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, or Wyoming.
  • Be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States.
  • 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). All scores must come from a single test. 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 the 2020 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 or $15,000 for each additional dependent in college full-time.
