Western Awarded Grant to Provide Scholarships to Nontraditional Students

The Boundless Opportunity Scholarship is designed to benefit motivated nontraditional students who recognize the power of education in creating a better life for themselves and their families.

“As always, we are looking to help students be successful, and this is another opportunity we have been granted to do that,” Western Assistant Director of Financial Aid Tanner Stillwell said. “We are extremely thankful and look forward to awarding scholarships to some great candidates.”

These need-based scholarships are available to specific student populations including “nontraditional and special-circumstance students who meet other criteria as well,” Stillwell said.

“Boundless Opportunity Scholarships benefit nontraditional students who desire to create a better life by investing in their education,” said Daniels Fund President and CEO Linda Childears. “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.’”
