The Chicano Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to incoming freshmen (Utah high school graduates), current undergraduate students, and to graduate students at the University of Utah. Eligible students are selected on the basis of family background, life challenges, scholastic effort, and involvement in community activities that promote cultural pride and strengthen the Chicana/o/x/ – Latinx community. Financial need may strongly influence the final selection. The Chicano/a Scholarship will be administered and awarded by the Scholarship Committee in the Center for Equity and Student Belonging (CESB) at the University of Utah.
