"As a recipient of this scholarship, I was extremely thankful and appreciative of the immense love, friendship and motivation that I received from Daniel Trust. Learning about Daniel's compelling and inspiring story paves the way for me to strive to do my best. I used to believe that whatever I did wasn't good enough and I didn't have a purpose, but getting to know Daniel made me realize that he believed in me, and if others can believe in me, then I can believe in myself. I leave to Fairfield University in 45 days (and yes, I am counting ^_^ ), and the scholarship I received will be a huge help to pay for books and other miscellaneous things."

"As a recipient of this scholarship, I believe that The Daniel Trust foundation is a great organization and supportive group, that all students should apply for in 2015. Daniel Trust is inspiring teens around the world with his motivating story. He became a mentor to me and one of my biggest support system. As I enter Southern Connecticut State University in the fall, which he is an alumni of, I know he will be there when it is well needed. I am grateful for this foundation and hope it continues to rise rise rise!"

"The Daniel Trust Foundation is a community based organization. Not only does it affect the community surrounding it, but reaches people all over America. As a 2014 scholarship recipient, I am proud to represent this foundation. Daniel has encouraged me that no situation can hold you back from success. If you are looking for moral support and guidance, Daniel is the perfect person to go to. His judgement free attitude has been influential to me. Please support his foundation because he is supporting the youth of America not just Bridgeport." 
^Scholar Diamond Allen
"What I love about Daniel Trust and The Daniel Trust Foundation is that unlike other scholarship organizations, that just give you a pay check or a "pat-on-the-back," the organization and Daniel, go above and beyond for the scholars, supporters and the local community. Not only does he support his scholars monetarily, but he provides mentor-ship, guidance and opportunity. After spending a month interning with the organization in Connecticut, I can confidently say that my words are absolutely true. I have never seen someone put in so much heart, time and commitment into what they believe in and stand for. It seemed like Daniel was up, dawn past midnight almost every single day, working on something new for the foundation."
