Daniels Fund Scholarship Recipient – Eric A.

Congratulations to Academy High School senior Eric A. on receiving a 2022 Daniels Fund scholarship!

eric“I was very shocked,” Eric expressed upon receiving the news. “The first thing I did was hug my brother and director.” 

The Daniels Scholarship Program offers a four-year scholarship to support the cost of tuition and fees, boarding, and supplies up to $100,000. Scholarship recipients are selected based on character, leadership potential, personality, emotional maturity, and a commitment to serving their communities. Potential student candidates must also maintain a GPA of 3.0 or above and score above the minimum requirements on the SAT or ACT.

Next fall, Eric will attend the University of Denver to pursue a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in business and construction management. This 4+1 degree program allows Eric to pursue finance, marketing, property management, real estate, and other career pathways. Eric dreams this journey will lead to an opportunity to create his own business.  

“I’d like to thank all the [Academy] staff that helped me with my mock interviews,” Eric said. “I’d also like to thank my senior class for pushing me and my family and brother for being the biggest impact.”

Eric’s older brother, Daniel, is also a Daniels Fund Scholarship recipient and a huge inspiration for him in academics and seeking funding for further education.

We look forward to following Eric’s bright future and so proud of his accomplishments!
