Alumni Scholarships for Student Veterans General Application
STUDENT VETERANS GENERAL APPLICATION
Provided by: University of Utah Alumni Association & Veterans Support Center
Number of awards: 12
Application deadline: February 14, 2020 by 11:59 p.m. (MST)
Recognizing that achieving academic excellence while serving in the military or attending without full VA educational benefits is challenging, the UUAA and VSC established the Alumni Scholarships for: Undergraduate Student Veteran Persistence, Undergraduate Student Veteran Volunteerism and Student Veteran Leadership to promote student veteran retention and graduation.
Many students who are selected to receive a University scholarship after May 12, 2015 are required by state law to certify under penalty of perjury that they are eligible to receive the scholarship as a U.S. citizen or a citizen of another country who is lawfully present within the United States. Students who have both graduated from a recognized Utah high school and who are awarded a scholarship funded by a private donor are not required to certify their lawful presence before receiving a privately funded scholarship. (This scholarship is a privately funded scholarship.)
VSC DEFINITION OF A STUDENT VETERAN
