Larry H. and Gail Miller Enrichment Scholarship
The University of Utah strives to create a diverse and inclusive environment. We recognize that a diverse student body benefits and enriches the educational experiences of all students, faculty and staff. Thus the U strives to attract students who have the ability to contribute to and benefit from a culturally and intellectually diverse learning community. Our goal is to make every attempt to support the student’s academic and personal success while enrolled at the U.
Eligible students are those with demonstrated financial need as determined by the FAFSA during the time of initial application. Students not eligible to complete the FAFSA should contact Ashley Stevenson at firstname.lastname@example.org for next steps. Whenever possible, students will be selected from applicants whose ethnic background is under-represented in higher education in Utah and those who are first generation college students. In the event that no students qualify for the award on that basis, the scholarship may be awarded to other students whose cultural background or life experiences demonstrate an affiliation with or an understanding of a diverse background, and who will contribute to an educationally diverse environment at the University of Utah. A primary goal of the scholarship is to integrate students with campus life through volunteer community/leadership service.

Full Tuition and Fees (for undergraduate Utah residents)up to 15 credit hours per semester
