Daniel Woods Legacy Scholarship at Cheyney University

The Daniel Woods Legacy Scholarship Fund will provide financial assistance to students who are enrolled in a business degree program at Cheyney University and has overcome a significant family, academic, or emotional hardship.

The scholarship was created to honor the memory of Daniel Woods, founder of Daniel Woods Real Estate, who passed away in 2023. Daniel was passionate about supporting our youth to create opportunities through education. To reduce the financial barriers of college for working-class families, he had the idea to create a scholarship fund to help students offset some of their living expenses. He wanted to reduce the stress and worry that cause students to struggle or leave without a degree.

He saw education as a game changer for families. His experience at Cheyney University planted the seeds of his becoming an entrepreneur. He also saw how his investment in his daughter’s education benefited the larger community.
