    • Dec.1 Priority Deadline

  • Need: April 1

2014-2015 Scholarship Information:

* Any remaining Merit Scholarship funds will be awarded to applicants who have completed the admissions process between Dec. 2 and Feb. 1. Merit scholarship consideration will be based on the ACT/SAT test score with which students are admitted. Results from tests taken after the official October ACT/SAT test date, initial or retakes, will not be taken into consideration for scholarship eligibility.

Current resident and non-resident high school seniors applying for Merit scholarships at the University of Utah need to complete the admissions process to the University by the Admissions priority deadline of December 1. President's Scholarship recipients will be notified by the end of January.
The admission deadline for Diversity Scholarships is February 1. The deadline for Need-based scholarships is April 1, with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) having been filed previously.
The freshman scholarship acceptance deadline along with the Admissions enrollment deposit fee is May 1. The Financial Aid and Scholarships office has no funds available for international students.

(Consideration for freshman scholarships will not be given in subsequent years, even if the student is a freshman. However, deferment of scholarships may be granted.) Maintaining eligibility requires that you enroll for and attend a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester (full-time enrollment).

Scholarships will be granted based on these factors:

  1. Merit: Based on unweighted high school grade point average (GPA) for grades nine through eleven, and scores on the ACT or SAT. 
  2. Diversity: Based on the student's capacity to contribute to the diversity of the student body.
  3. Need: Based on demonstrated financial need.

If applying for Need-based scholarships, also apply for Financial Aid. (If you plan to apply only for Need-based Scholarships, you may apply until April 1.)

Social Security Numbers

The University of Utah Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will use Social Security Numbers to verify your identity and match data.  You are not required to provide your Social Security Number when completing your application for admission to the University, however it is a critical data element used in our processes.   Our ability to determine your eligibility for both Financial Aid and Scholarships will be severely restricted if your Social Security number is not provided in the Application for Admission.  Omission of your Social Security Number may eliminate you from consideration for scholarship funding.

Citizenship

Students are required by state law to certify that they are eligible to receive a scholarship as a U.S. citizen or a citizen of another country who is lawfully present in the U.S.  If students do not know whether they are in the U.S. lawfully, they should seek the advice of an immigration attorney before submitting a scholarship application.

Prior to the disbursement of any scholarship, the University of Utah is required by law to verify the recipient's citizenship status or lawful presence in the U.S. with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  Once the University submits a student's information to DHS for verification, this federal agency may have the legal right to share the information with other government agencies.
