Supplemental Scholarships

These scholarships involve narrow awarding scopes, with specific criteria set by donors. The scholarship committee takes a holistic approach when evaluating and selecting applicants for scholarships since funding is limited (approximately 30 total awards). The committee strives to select applicants with demonstrated financial need and who are the best qualified for any available scholarship.

Applications are now closed.

Supplemental scholarships involve a narrow awarding scope, with specific criteria set by donors. The scholarship committee takes a holistic approach when evaluating and selecting applicants for scholarships since funding is limited. The committee strives to select applicants with demonstrated financial need and who are the best qualified for any available scholarship.

Some factors that are heavily weighted, but not limited to, are as follows:

  • Major status
  • Demonstrated financial need
  • Volunteer work
  • Extracurricular activities and work experience
  • Adversities
  • Career goals

All scholarships are awarded for Fall and Spring semesters unless the scholarship committee or program director has approved an exception. We do not offer Summer scholarships.

Scholarship recipients must continue to make progress toward a business degree at the University of Utah unless the scholarship committee or program director has approved an exception.

Graduating seniors are still eligible to apply and can receive their award at less than full-time status, and may receive their total scholarship allotment for fall semester if graduating. The committee will also consider applicants enrolled part-time as long as they qualify and are the best candidate for a particular scholarship.

These scholarships are neither renewable nor deferrable; applicants must reapply each year to be reconsidered.
