Three high school students and three college students will each receive a $1,000 college scholarship for a total of $22,000 in scholarship awards to students who are working to make a difference wherever and however they can.
All information must be complete, and all documents uploaded before you can submit your application. Read everything carefully, complete required documents, approach recommenders before beginning to submit your application. Upload everything at once as you will not be able to save your application and come back later.
Applicants must be a Utah student and a US citizen, legal resident, or have DACA status. Applicants must be a junior or senior in a Utah high school or must be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate college or university program in the state of Utah.
Applicants will be judged on quality of essays and recommendation forms and, above all, on evidence of sustained, focused service efforts on behalf of genuinely needy individuals or communities. We are looking for applicants who demonstrate strong leadership skills, consistent service over a period of time, hands-on service, self-driven service, collaboration with others, and local impact right here in Utah.
Applications must be submitted on the Youthlinc website www.youthlinc.org.
