The Utah Valley University Board of Trustees have expressed a desire to make personal contributions toward an annual scholarship to be awarded based on a student’s engaged learning project and activities.
The Board of Trustees Engaged Learning Scholarship (BoTS) should be based on the merits of a student’s engaged learning project. While the student should have a track record of good academic performance, this does not necessarily mean the student will have a top tier GPA. The merits of a student’s engaged learning project will be weighted heavily and will take priority over academic GPA.
Application deadline: January 15 each year
The top three candidates selected by the Committee will make a brief presentation at the Board of Trustee’s meeting scheduled for February of each year. The Scholarly and Creative Activities Committee will then select the award recipient based on evaluation scores and their presentation to the Trustee's.
The scholarship award will be processed by the Financial Air Scholarship Office and the recipient will be invited to attend the annual Trustees' Awards of Excellence Banquet.
At the completion of the recipient's engaged learning project, they will be required to make a presentation to the Board of Trustees regarding the project, its outcome and their experience.
