Gillette, WY – Gillette College Foundation is pleased to announce that it has received a $30,000 grant from the Daniels Fund to provide Boundless Opportunity Scholarships to non-traditional students.

The Boundless Opportunity Scholarship is designed to benefit motivated non-traditional students who recognize the power of education to create a better life for themselves and their families.

These need-based scholarships are available to specific student populations including adults entering or returning to college, ABE recipients, veterans entering or returning to college, and individuals pursuing EMT/paramedic training/certification.

“Boundless Opportunity Scholarships benefit non-traditional students who desire to create a better life by investing in their education,” said Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund. “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’.”
