Staff Association Scholarship

SUU Staff Association Scholarships are awarded each year to deserving SUU students who are nominated by Staff Association members (non-faculty) of Southern Utah University. The scholarship is funded by donations from the non-faculty staff members and from earnings from the Staff Association Endowment.

Applicant Criteria

  • Sophomore, junior or senior status for the year of the scholarship award.
  • Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  • Attend SUU during both fall and spring semesters – scholarship will be equally dispersed over both semesters.

Recipient Responsibilities

  • Maintain a minimum academic load of 12 credit hours each semester during award.
  • Maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  • Write a thank you letter to the Staff Association.
  • Attend the Staff Association Opening Social – the first of fall semester. 


Award Process

  • Scholarships will be awarded by the SUU Staff Association Scholarship Committee.
  • Each scholarship awarded is approximately $500 - $1,000 for the academic semester, and the number of scholarships awarded varies each year based on available funding.
  • Preference may be given to students with lesser scholarship awards based on availability of funds and applicant needs.
  • Awards will be managed by the SUU Financial Aid Office and may not exceed tuition and fees.

If a scholarship recipient leaves SUU for any reason during the year the SUU Staff Association Board may, at its sole discretion, award the remaining funds to another student.
