Utah Opportunity Scholarship (UOS)
The University of Utah recognizes that a racially/ethnically diverse student body benefits and enriches the educational experiences of all students, faculty, and staff. Thus, we strive to recruit students who will further enrich this diversity, and make every attempt to support their academic and personal success while they are here. In support of this goal, the Utah Opportunity Scholarship (UOS) will be offered to entering freshmen that graduate from a high school in Utah. Eligible applicants are first-generation college students and/or those with demonstrated financial need. Whenever possible, scholars will be selected from applicants whose ethnic background is under-represented in higher education in Utah. Other attributes we seek are students that have community service or leadership within underrepresented communities. Selected applicants must also be accepted to the University of Utah.
