Daniels Fund LogoThe College Enrichment Program at the University of New Mexico has received a $28,000 grant from the Daniels Fund to provide Boundless Opportunity Scholarships to non-traditional students from all walks of life.

Boundless Opportunity Scholarships will help highly-motivated students at the University of New Mexico achieve their goals by providing financial assistance toward a better education, and a better life for themselves and their families.

These need-based scholarships target candidates from specific student populations, including adult learners, GED recipients, foster care youth, juvenile justice youth, returning military, individuals pursuing EMT/paramedic training and individuals pursuing Early Childhood Education (ECE) certification.

“Boundless Opportunity Scholarships are intended to benefit non-traditional students seeking the economic and social benefits of a college education,” explained Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund.
