    WAYS TO GET INVOLVED


    MESSAGE FROM THE SCHOLARSHIP OFFICE:

    Many scholarships, both academic and vocational, are available to students who qualify. While donors of these grants are interested in students who have achieved scholastic excellence, they also look closely at those who exhibit good citizenship, qualities of leadership, and development of individual talents. Students interested in scholarships should contact any of the Counselors or the Scholarship Coordinator in the Counseling Center. They will be helpful in providing additional information as well as assisting students in preparing and applying for such grants. Students may also write to the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office of any particular college. Senior students should be aware of early application deadlines. There are many scholarships for non-seniors. Please check with your Counselor.

Application Process for Seniors

The application for the Utah Scholars Recognition certificate and medallion is open. If student are interested in applying please encourage them to fill out the form online. This is open to any student that meets the requirements. It is often asked if it too late to sign up and join the program if they are a senior; the answer is they can sign up at any time before the deadline. The college readiness activities can also be completed at any time. The grade-by-grade checklists are a suggested timeline that students can follow but, they will not be penalized if they complete an activity at a different time. If you would like me to send you a list of the students that have applied so far, let me know and I will get that to you.

The Utah Scholars Recognition Application deadline is March 31, 2017.

Getting the Utah Scholars Certificates and Medallions

Once we have reviewed all of the applications, we will email you a list with the names of the students receiving the Recognition along with a shipping confirmation link. You will receive a box with a medallion and certificate for each student along with a paper copy of the list of students and a brief description on suggested language to use when announcing recipients of the Utah Scholars Recognition. We ask for your help in getting the Utah Scholars certificates and medallions to the students during senior awards night, senior assembly, senior breakfast, luncheon, dinner, banquet, graduation or some other form you feel appropriate.

To ensure that we get the package to you in a timely manner please fill out this short form by March 24 asking you about the date you would like them by. http://bit.ly/USImedallion

Help Spread the Word

Throughout the school year we have been messaging seniors about the changes via email, newsletter, social media and text messaging and encouraging them to apply. If you are able we would love your help in promoting this application. Below are some suggested ways on how to promote the Utah Scholars Recognition.

Please keep in mind that while Utah Scholars Recognition is important, it is not a scholarship and does not carry a monetary award.
