Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSUGlobal.edu) is excited to announce it has received a grant from the Daniels Fund to award Boundless Opportunity Scholarships to its students over the next two academic years. This is the second consecutive cycle that CSU-Global has received a grant from the Daniels Fund to help its students through scholarship opportunities.
“The generosity of the Daniels Fund grant will allow us to provide much needed assistance to some of our nontraditional learners who might not otherwise be able to complete their bachelor’s degree,” says Colorado State University-Global Campus President Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker. “We appreciate the support of the Daniels Fund towards both CSU-Global and higher education in Colorado. The funding will have a clear impact in helping us to achieve our mission of facilitating adult success in reaching academic and professional goals.”
The grant funds will be utilized to support the university’s On-The-Horizon Boundless Opportunity scholarships in the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 academic years. This unique scholarship program is designed for students who are close to graduation (within 12 credits) and who demonstrate significant financial need that might prevent them from completing their degrees. Recipients receive funding for the tuition of their remaining credits to help them overcome the final hurdle of earning their bachelor’s degree online while helping to alleviate some of their student debt.
“Boundless Opportunity Scholarships benefit non-traditional students who desire to create a better life by investing in their education,” explains Linda Childears, President and CEO of the Daniels Fund. “As our founder Bill Daniels once said, ‘American remains the greatest nation on Earth, where boundless opportunities still exist for each and every one of us.”
The application process for the Boundless Opportunity Scholarships will open along with CSU-Global’s other institutional scholarships for the Fall Trimester later this spring.
