Retention Scholarship Referral Form

Retention Scholarships:

Use this form to refer any first bachelors student who is currently registered at Utah State University. Scholarships are available for both merit (3.5 GPA or higher) and financial need (2.75 or higher). Referred students will be contacted by the Retention Scholarship Committee regarding the application process. Funding is limited so awards are not guaranteed. As such, please do not share your referral directly with the student. The committee will evaluate each referred student and contact those who meet the minimum criteria. Every effort will be made to help as many students as possible.

Funds are awarded on an ongoing basis until all scholarships have been allocated. The review process will begin approximately 3 weeks prior to priority registration for each semester.
