Competition Level     

Because this is a new scholarship, very little students know about it.  In addition this is a Utah only scholarship, which limits the amount of students that can apply.  Those two factors combined with the requirement to create a video make this scholarship have a very low competition level.  We highly recommend that you take the time to apply.


Videos may be submitted as early as January 1, 2016.  The videos will not be accepted any later than April 15, 2016.
