To qualify for a scholarship, candidates must either be enrolled in — or have been accepted into — an educational leadership program that leads to an administrative license. The program must be administered at a Utah college or university or by way of an online program while the candidate resides in Utah.

ALAS-Utah was established in September 2015 and advocates for Latino students and administrators.

According to a statement from the group, Latino students made up 16 percent of public school students in Utah, whereas Latinos made up only 2.1 percent of teachers and principals in 2015.
