U announces new concurrent enrollment scholarship

The University of Utah has created a new scholarship aimed at serving in-state students who have jump-started their college careers while still in high school.

 “The U recognizes the hard work that Utah students have done on college-level courses during their high school experience,” said Steve Robinson, senior associate vice president for enrollment management. “Our campus is the perfect home for these academically prepared students to help them achieve their educational goals.”

 The newly announced Concurrent Enrollment Scholarship is available for the incoming Class of 2024.

Recipients must meet the following criteria:

  1. Be a Utah resident.
  2. Be a first-time, first-year applicant to the U.
  3. Have a 3.2 unweighted GPA at the time of their application.
  4. Graduate high school with at least nine hours of transferrable college credits with letter grades of B- or better. These credits can be through concurrent enrollment or the High School University Program, HSUP.
  5. Demonstrate financial need via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, with some exceptions. Please see the Concurrent Enrollment Scholarship website for details.

 The scholarship package includes:

  1. $3,000 per year (fall and spring semesters) toward tuition and mandatory fees. Funding is awarded for up to eight semesters.
  2. An increased opportunity for on-campus employment.

To be considered for the scholarship, students should:

  1. Complete the U’s admissions application no later than April 1
  2. Submit their FAFSA by Aug. 1.

No additional application is necessary. The university plans to notify eligible students this summer.

For continued eligibility, students will need to be enrolled full-time for all eight semesters and maintain at least a 3.0 GPA at the University of Utah.
