UW Serves Adult Learners Through Daniels Fund Gift

May 10, 2016

The University of Wyoming recently received a gift of $50,000 from the Daniels Fund to support adult learners for up to two years at UW while they are completing their first bachelor’s degree through the Boundless Opportunity Scholarship.

The Daniels Fund was founded by Bill Daniels and supports scholarships and academic success programming to assist nontraditional students. The Boundless Opportunity Scholarship is for nontraditional students age 25 or older.

In addition to the age requirement for the Boundless Opportunity Scholarship, students must be working on their first bachelor’s degree; be enrolled full time at UW for the fall 2016 semester by the application deadline; have filed a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid); and commit to participating in academic success meetings, workshops and activities.

If the applicant is a transfer student, he or she is encouraged to have 60 or more credit hours and have declared a major.

The application for the Boundless Opportunity Scholarship is available online through UW’s Academic Works program at UW has started accepting applications for the Daniels Fund Boundless Opportunity Scholarship and will continue through July 2.

Recipients of the Boundless Opportunity Scholarship will be required to be active participants in one of the two following programs: Student Success Services, which is a TRiO program at UW, or the Nontraditional Student Center, which is a program within the Dean of Students Office and located in the Wyoming Union.

Awards given will not exceed the cost of tuition and fees; will depend on the applicant’s financial needs in relation to the total cost of attending UW; and may be competitively renewable for the second year, as long as the recipient is making progress toward an undergraduate degree and participating in program services.
