Honors Program Awards and Scholarships                                                                                  

 

The Honors Program at UVU supports many of its students with a variety of financial awards. Program admission is competitive and many students participate without a financial award in order to receive the significant and enriching benefits offered.

Students are automatically considered for awards during the application process. Applicants not awarded at time of initial admission may reapply as often as they choose during their participation in the Honors Program.

During the application process, there will be an option to indicate which awards the applicant prefers.
