SALT LAKE CITY — Deadlines for two substantial University of Utah scholarships are quickly approaching, and students, specifically first-generation and low-income students, are encouraged to apply. Each scholarship provides up to $5,000 annually to cover the cost of tuition, books and fees. In addition, selected students will participate in a faculty mentoring program, as well as academic and social support programs toward their educational success.
The Suder Foundation Scholarship, made possible by a major grant awarded to the U., will provide scholarships to 20 first-generation freshmen from low-income households. Applications are due by Feb. 1 for the upcoming fall semester.
Applications for the Utah Opportunity Scholarship, which also targets low-income students and seeks those from diverse, underrepresented backgrounds, are due Feb. 19. Information on both scholarships, including applications, is available online at www.diversity.utah.edu/scholarships/uos.php or call Feleti Matagi at 801-581-4165.
