The Boundless Opportunity Scholarship (BOS) is designed to benefit highly-motivated non-traditional students who recognize the power of education to create a better life for themselves and their families.
The scholarship is available at select two- and four-year colleges and universities in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. The Daniels Fund - the legacy of cable television pioneer Bill Daniels - awards grants to partnering colleges and universities who then provide need-based scholarships to successful student applicants.
The BOS program serves seven non-traditional student populations, and is intended to help students able to demonstrate the need for financial assistance as they invest in themselves through continued education.
Partnering schools choose to offer the BOS program to one or more of these defined student populations:
-Adults entering or returning to college
-Former foster care youth
-Former juvenile justice youth
-Individuals pursuing EMT/paramedic training
-Individuals pursuing Early Childhood Education (ECE) certification
Students must be legal residents of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, or Wyoming to be eligible.
Scholarships cover both direct and indirect expenses:
-Direct Expenses: tuition and fees, campus-provided health insurance, room and board
-Indirect Expenses: books and supplies, transportation/commuting expenses (limited to gas or public transportation)
