Nominations for Student Veteran of the Year open now


The Veterans Support Center is currently accepting nominations for the Student Veteran of the Year. For those that don’t know, the Student Veteran of the Year (SVOY) award is presented annually by the University of Utah Veterans Support Center (VSC) to a U.S. Armed Forces service member or veteran enrolled at the university.

The award recognizes academic achievement, community/campus service, and military accomplishments. A committee of peers selects the awardee, with significant emphasis placed on community/campus service.  The honor consists of a $500 scholarship, an engraved medallion, and the SVOY’s name engraved on a plaque displayed in the VSC. The SVOY is also recognized at our Veterans Day Commemoration on November 11, 2021.

Nominations may be submitted by students, faculty, and staff and must be received by 11:59 PM MDT on October 20, 2021.
