Robert B. Daniels Memorial Endowed Scholarship

This fund is to provide travel scholarships to MSU Denver students to experience art historical sites and other academic opportunities both domestic and international for students who have demonstrated a commitment to a career in the visual arts. The fund honors the memory of the donor’s late husband, Robert B. Daniels.

Robert had a bachelor’s degree in painting and a heartfelt belief that a painter must know the history of art to be a relevant painter today.
