With growing numbers of students and shrinking state support, Utah Valley University depends increasingly on scholarships funded by donors. For the 2017-2018 school year, the University was able to award nearly $1.8 million in private scholarships to UVU students. However, these funds supported only 966 of the more than 7,000 students who applied for assistance.

UVU is committed to meeting the higher education needs of the region and to providing every student with an outstanding educational experience. The University aims to provide financial assistance to every student with demonstrated need. You can help support a UVU student by making a donation of any size to scholarships.

Scholarship Types

Annual (general)

When you make a gift of any amount to the Foundation Scholarship Fund, it is combined with other donor gifts to support students.

Annual (named)

Provide a student with a half-tuition or one-semester scholarship of at least $2,000, and UVU will award it in your name or in the name of someone you wish to honor.


An endowment gift of $30,000 provides an annual scholarship award of $1,500 in perpetuity. An endowment gift of $50,000 provides an annual half-tuition scholarship ($2,500). A $100,000 endowment gift provides a deserving student with an annual full-tuition scholarship.
