Scholarship Opportunities

By Sydney Goldenstein

Are you planning on going to college but worried about money? Senior class of 2016, consider the following scholarships.

Daniels Scholarship Program is a scholarship that not only helps students earn a degree, but also prepares them for success after college. According to its website, the program provides a four-year annually-renewable college scholarship for graduating high school seniors who demonstrate exceptional character, leadership and are committed to serving their communities.

Daniels scholars are selected because they represent principles including strength of character, leadership potential, academic performance or promise, willingness to give back to the community and a well-rounded personality. In addition, there are a number of specific requirements to be met in order to be eligible for the Daniels Scholarship.

Students must satisfy the following requirements at the time of application: be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States; be a resident of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah or Wyoming; earn ACT scores of at least 17 in each category or an SAT score of at least 400  and critical reading score of at least 440; demonstrate financial need.

The Boettcher Scholarship program was created to support Colorado’s top students by providing them with Colorado scholarships to attain an excellent in-state education, according to the Boettcher Foundation.

What is included in the Boettcher Scholarship? Full tuition and fees (eligible colleges are listed on the website), book allowance, campus enrichment programming, scholar grants, annual events and more.

These scholarships are much more than just a check for college; they are programs to help students succeed in college and beyond. Seniors can apply for the Daniels Fund until Nov. 13 at 4 p.m. The Boettcher Scholarship forms and materials must be posted no later than 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 1 of your senior year.
