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.

During the application process, students may select which award they are seeking. Applicants not awarded at the time of initial admission may reapply as often as they choose during their participation in the Honors Program. Scholarships are typically reviewed for distribution on the 15th of each month.
