Call for nominations: MLK Youth Leadership Awards

Each awardee is honored during the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Week.

The University of Utah’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Youth Leadership Award honors outstanding students from across the State of Utah, grades 7 through 12, for their dedication to the beliefs of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through community service and leadership. Each Awardee is honored during the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Week held at the University of Utah.

This year, U Alumni is pleased to announce that we are offering University of Utah tuition scholarships to up to four high school seniors in addition to the traditional awards. Students in grades 7-11 can still be nominated and selected for the traditional award. Twelfth candidates will be evaluated separately, and the selection committee will offer the award and scholarship to up to four students.
