Chicana/o Scholarship Fund mark

In 1973, in honor of the ideals and principles of equal opportunity and social justice in education, a group of Chicana/os comprised of members from the community and University of Utah students, staff, and faculty-initiated the Chicana/o Scholarship Fund at the University of Utah. Committed to all students of diversity who promote the cultural pride and tradition of the Chicana/o-Latina/o community, the Chicana/o Scholarship Fund recognizes and assists students in their undergraduate and/or graduate education endeavors.

The Chicana/o Scholarship Fund awards up to twelve scholarships in an academic year. Awards range from $2,500 to graduating high school seniors (who will be entering their freshman year), $2,000 to undergraduate students, and $1,500 to graduate students at the University of Utah. Financial need may strongly influence the final selection.
