Our Opportunities

The General Scholarship Application and Opportunities is now available for the 2020-21 year.

Welcome to the University of Utah’s scholarships management site! The scholarships listed are offered by various colleges, departments and offices throughout the University. Click “Show Filters” to display filter options such as college or major. Use the “Search” box to find scholarships by keyword or name. Select the scholarship name to learn more about the opportunity.

Sign in, complete your General Application. Depending on your major you may be prompted to complete a Conditional Application which is required for scholarships in your major or area of study. Once you complete the General Application (and Conditional Application, if applicable), scholarships that are currently “open” will be recommended to you if you meet the basic criteria. Please keep in mind, that recommended does not constitute qualified. You can update and edit any application (including the General Application) until the scholarship opportunity closes.

Scholarships with the word “apply” in the Action column (after you sign in) require further action on your part in order to be considered. Click “apply” to complete the application process.

Please read the scholarship eligibility requirements carefully to make sure you meet the eligibility requirements (e.g. major, GPA, enrollment requirement to receive the scholarship, other requirements as stated) before applying.

There are some scholarship opportunities you do not have to apply to, but will be automatically matched to after you complete your General Application (and Conditional Application if there is one). Qualifying for any scholarship does not guarantee you will receive the scholarship.

The scholarship amount awarded may vary from the advertised amount. Payout of all awards is subject to availability of funds.

The General Application you completed will be kept until August of each year. You must complete a new General Application at the beginning of every Fall semester.

If you are asked to upload a resume, letter of support or any other supporting documentation, please know that the system will not allow for punctuation (commas, apostrophes and periods) to be used in the file name (example: John.Doe, Resume.2020). Using punctuation will cause an error in trying to upload any of these supporting documents. Rename any file that includes these and don’t forget to click “Save and Keep Editing” after you select the file you wish to upload. Clicking “Finish and Submit” will submit your completed application for consideration.

Information provided may be reviewed by scholarship selection committees, faculty, development, donors, scholarships & financial aid office as well as other areas at the University of Utah. Once a scholarship application and/or recommendations are submitted, the information will be retained by the University of Utah and will not be shared external to the university. Any letters of recommendation in AcademicWorks will not be provided to the student directly.

The University of Utah is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action institution. For detailed information or to request a reasonable accommodation, visit utah.edu/nondiscrimination/
