The Daniels Scholarship Program is part of the legacy of cable television pioneer and philanthropist Bill Daniels. He founded the Young Americans Bank in 1987 and supported the business school at the University of Denver, which was later renamed the Daniels College of Business in his honor. He also established the Daniels Fund, one of the largest foundations in the Rocky Mountain region. The Daniels Fund has provided more than $154 million in undergraduate scholarships to more than 3,700 students from the four-state region of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. Since 2000, Daniels Scholars have attended more than 400 colleges and universities in 49 states.
