Readers' forum: Scholarship giving

Published: Saturday, Oct. 1 2011 12:00 a.m. MDT

I just returned from a meeting at my child's high school regarding scholarships available to Utah high school students. It is always very frustrating to see Diversity Scholarships, Minority Scholarships and Ethnic Scholarships, which are available to only a select group because of their race. How are the people who qualify for so much of our educational money not the most educated people in our country? When will educational money be dispersed equally to all students, not based on their race?
