The University of Utah recognizes that a racially/ethnically diverse student body benefits and enriches the educational experiences of all students, faculty, and staff. Thus, we strive to recruit students who will further enrich this diversity, and make every attempt to support their academic and personal success while they are here. In support of this goal, the Utah Opportunity Scholarship (UOS) will be offered to entering freshmen who reside in the Greater Salt Lake City area. Eligible students are first-generation college students and/or those with demonstrated financial need. Whenever possible, scholars will be selected from applicants whose ethnic background is under-represented in higher education in Utah.
