Daniels Fund Scholarship to Aid UW Adult Learners

May 9, 2012

A  $50,000 Daniels Fund gift will fund adult learners for up to two years while they complete their first bachelor's degree at the University of Wyoming.

Applications for the Daniels Fund Nontraditional Student Opportunity Scholarship will be accepted through Monday, July 2. The Daniels Fund supports scholarships and academic success programs that assist students age 25 and older.

In addition to being 25 or older, and working on a first bachelor's degree, applicants for the new two-year scholarships must be enrolled full time for the fall semester  before the application deadline; have filed a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid); and committed to participating in academic success meetings, workshops and activities.

Transfer students also are eligible to apply and should have 60 or more credit hours and a declared major.

Scholarship recipients will be required to participate in one of two programs -- Student Success Services, a federal TRiO program at UW; or the Nontraditional Student Center, a program within the Dean of Students office.

"Participation will provide students an opportunity to be successful at UW, and gain or build on skills required for academic success," says Dolores Cardona, UW associate dean of students.
