The Daniels Scholarship is a comprehensive college scholarship that pays toward the costs of tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies and miscellaneous educational expenses. The amount of the scholarship is unique to each Daniels Scholar and can vary from year to year.

The Daniels Scholarship Program is managed by the Daniels Fund, which was established by entrepreneur and business visionary Bill Daniels. Daniels Scholars are selected because they embody the principles and values Bill Daniels defined as hallmarks of the program. Those qualities include strength of character, leadership potential, academic performance or promise, willingness to give back to the community and a well-rounded personality.

As of June 2015, the Daniels Scholarship Program has provided nearly $130 million in undergraduate scholarships to more than 3,250 students.​
