Board of Trustees Scholarship
The SUU Board of Trustees Endowment is funded by members of the Board of Trustees and awarded to an outstanding student of junior class standing. One outstanding student is chosen from the College of Education and Human Development to apply for this award.
In terms of financial assistance for a student, this is one of the most prestigious scholarships offered by the University. The award is full tuition and student fees, plus $1000, for an IN-STATE student. If the student is non-resident, they will be responsible for the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition rates.
Eccles Scholarships will be awarded to deserving male and female students from Utah (Intermountain West) who have excelled academically and personally in their lives. The Eccles scholarships are among the most prestigious on campus. The College of Education awards two $3,000 scholarships each year.
