Resident Freshmen Scholarships

Academic deadline: December 1
Involvement/Need-based deadline: February 1

Academic scholarships will be awarded after the December 1 deadline. Because the number of scholarships is limited, students will be considered based on the index score they have earned as of December 1. Consideration for academic scholarships will not be given to any applicant after
December 1.

To be considered for scholarships applicants must:

  • Apply for a Fall semester
  • Be a US Citizen or have Permanent Resident Status
  • Attend and have an intent to graduate from Utah State University
  • Be a new, first-time student to Utah State University. Returning students do not qualify for academic scholarships. Concurrent enrollment is still eligible for scholarships.
  • Major in a USU program (i.e. students majoring in nursing from Weber State are not eligible for Utah State University sponsored scholarships)
  • Students planning to defer their attendance to USU should apply for fall 2015 to be eligible for scholarships.

Scholarships are effective for fall semester 2015 and are subject to change. Index scores are determined using the non-weighted GPA without rounding up. Academic scholarships will not be awarded to students who apply after December 1. December ACT scores will NOT be eligible for scholarship consideration.
