Alumni Legacy

To be eligible for these scholarships, you must be currently admitted to UVU, have submitted transcript(s) and have submitted ACT or SAT scores (if applicable). Most of the scholarships, highlighted within this web site and the many others not mentioned require the Comprehensive Online Scholarship Application.
