Diversity Scholarships

Note about departmental scholarships: Once you have declared your major, you should become eligible for departmental scholarships. Deadlines vary and range from early February to March. Contact your department chair for more information. Undocumented students and DACA recipients should ask their department chair if they are eligible; undocumented students and DACA recipients are welcome to contact Donielle Savoie at doniellesavoie@suu.edu if they have any concerns.

Do you still need financial assistance? Schedule an appointment with Financial Wellness counselor Ashleigh Zimmerman by calling 435-865-8436 or emailing ashleighzimmerman@suu.edu.

State Law SB 253 allows undocu/DACAmented students to apply for and receive privately funded scholarships administered by a Utah public college or university. Sometimes, private scholarships do not specify if they are open to undocu/DACAmented students. In those cases it may be necessary to reach out to the scholarship contact to determine eligibility. These scholarships have been vetted by Immigrants Rising or Willy Palomo and should be open to DACA recipients and undocumented students, unless otherwise noted.
