Our Opportunities

Welcome to The University of Utah’s Scholarship Management Site! 

Various colleges, departments and offices throughout the University of Utah offer the scholarships listed. Click “Show Filters” to display filter options such as college or major, or use the “Search” box to find scholarships by keyword or name. Select the scholarship name to learn more about the opportunity; see below for further details.  Keep in mind that Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) is not fully compatible with Academic Works; for optimal compatibility, sign in using any newer browser, for example: Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari.

Helpful Hints:

  • To Sign in: Click Sign In in the top right of this screen, and on the next screen you will use your University of Utah sign in credentials.  Upon signing in the first time, 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 being recommended does not constitute meeting the qualifications. 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.

 

  • IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ISSUES UPLOADING A FILEIf 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 of what is not allowed: 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.

 

  • There are some scholarship opportunities for which you do not have to apply, but will instead be automatically matched 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 amount listed, based on the availability of funds. Disbursement of all awards is also subject to availability of funds.

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