Scholarships

The University Honors Program mentors all USU undergraduates applying for national or international scholarships and fellowships. In addition, the program offers specific scholarships and other funding for Honors students and supports their application for additional forms of USU funding. Honors is proud to offer financial support to Honors students at every level of the program.

The following list moves outward from the Honors Program itself, to USU as a whole, and finally to national and international funding and scholarships.

Honors Program Funding and Scholarships

The University Honors Program offers dedicated Honors funding, scholarships, and awards, beginning in a student's first year in Honors. Applications are closed for 2021-22 scholarships and awards.

Please check the eligibility requirements for each scholarship before applying.

USU Grants and Scholarships

USU scholarships are available only to USU students. Be sure to check the eligibility requirements for each scholarship before applying.

National Scholarships and Fellowships

Honors advises, guides, and supports all USU undergraduates interested in applying for national or international scholarships or fellowships. Unless otherwise noted, the internal USU deadline for submission of the preliminary information form is six months prior to the intended scholarship application deadline.


Opportunities Alligned with USU's Land-Grant Mission

Honors proactively and strategically advises for a limited number of awards with criteria that closely match the demographics of our institution and its students. Because all of these awards require an institutional nomination, students must complete a preliminary information form by the internal (USU) deadline indicated below.
