Scholarship Mission

The ACLU of Utah will be giving out three scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each to eligible college bound Utah high school seniors. The scholarship will be awarded to those who have demonstrated a strong commitment to civil liberties through some form of activism. Past scholarship winners have come from many parts of Utah, and their civil liberties work has included programs and activities that advocate for racial diversity, rights of disabled students, women’s equality, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and equality for all.

Qualification Requirements

Utah resident. Current high school senior planning on entering an accredited college or university as a full-time, degree-seeking student. Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. If the GPA is less than 3.0, the applicant is still eligible but must submit an explanation for the lower GPA. Proof of strong commitment to civil liberties through some form of activism addressing such issues as equality, racial justice, free speech, religious freedom, tolerance, and privacy.

How Winners are Selected

Students complete a short application form, write a 1,000-word essay about their commitment to, and work on behalf of, civil liberties, and submit school transcripts as well as two recommendations from non-family references.
