Gillette College Receives Grant to Help Non-Traditional Students
(Gillette, Wyo.) The Daniels Fund has come through again. This time, for certain students attending Gillette College.
The Gillette College Foundation has announced that they recently received a $30,000 grant from the Daniels Fund to provide scholarships to give non-traditional students a leg-up as they pursue their education goals.
The funds will be awarded –as the Boundless Opportunity Scholarship—to those motivated non-traditional students that, according to Gillette College, fully recognize what education can do to better not only their lives, but the lives of their families as well.
“Boundless Opportunity Scholarships benefit non-traditional students who desire to create a better life by investing in their education,” Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund, said in a press release. “As our founder Bill Daniels once said, ‘America remains the greatest nation on Earth, where boundless opportunities still exist for each and every one of us’.”
The scholarships are given based on need and are available to adults and veterans who are entering or returning to college. They are also available to ABE recipients and those individuals seeking training or certification as an EMT or a paramedic.
The Daniels Fund was established by Bill Daniels, a cable television pioneer. It is a private charitable foundation dedicated to improving the lives of people in Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico through scholarships, grants, and ethics initiatives.
