Non-traditional students in New Mexico at risk of not being able to afford a college education will benefit from $76,000 in Boundless Opportunity Scholarships announced today by the Daniels Fund.
Colleges and universities in New Mexico receiving Boundless Opportunity Scholarship awards include: Central New Mexico University; Eastern New Mexico University; and the University of New Mexico, Taos campus.
Funding is awarded in two-year cycles, so Boundless Opportunity Scholarships are available at other colleges and universities that received awards last year. A complete list of schools offering the scholarship can be found on the Daniels Fund website, DanielsFund.org.
The Boundless Opportunity Scholarship is available at select two- and four-year colleges and universities and is intended for highly-motivated students seeking the next level of achievement in their lives, regardless of their life path.
Candidates for the scholarship must demonstrate financial need, and each college or university may focus on particular populations from a list of categories established for the program. The categories include: adult learners; GED recipients; foster care youth; juvenile justice youth; returning military; and individuals pursuing EMT/paramedic training.
Since 2004, the Daniels Fund has provided more than $1.2 million in Boundless Opportunity Scholarships (formerly known as Daniels Opportunity Scholarships) to more than 800 non-traditional students in New Mexico.
The program received its name through a quote from Bill Daniels, founder of the Daniels Fund who once lived in Hobbs and attended the New Mexico Military Institute, who stated, “America remains the greatest nation on earth, where boundless opportunities still exist for each and every one of us.”
