Make a Difference. Support a Scholarship
In 2013-14, resident tuition and fees for full-time students is $1,671 per semester. On average, students spend close to $450 each semester for books and supplies.
Three Ways to Support SLCC Scholarships
Donations to the SLCC General Scholarship Fund make it possible to award general scholarships to roughly 55% of the Utah high school seniors who apply. With additional donations we can help even more deserving students achieve their educational dreams.
- Contribute to the General Scholarship Fund. This fund is managed and administered by the SLCC Foundation. If desired, donors may earmark their contributions for specific types of students, such as students in a particular academic program, or a student who is a single parent, etc.
- Create a named annual scholarship. The suggested minimum donation to establish a named annual scholarship is $1,671(tuition and fees for one semester). Funds are expended as directed by the donor until such time as the account has a $0 balance. Additional donations may be made to extend the life of the named scholarship, or to increase the number of scholarships available each year.
- Endow a scholarship. With a minimum donation of $35,000 donors can endow a named scholarship. The SLCC Foundation will prudently invest the donation so that only investment returns provide scholarships. Scholarship distributions may not exceed 4% of a four-quarter rolling average of the fund balance. Additional contributions to an endowment may be made at any time to generate more interest earnings.
Scholarship Eligibility Criteria
By law, students who receive SLCC scholarship funding must demonstrate a legal presence in the United States. SLCC further requires that scholarship recipients be in good standing with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. Donors have considerable latitude in determining other scholarship criteria such as admission status (new or returning student), program of study, financial need, full-or part-time, member of an underserved or underrepresented population, minimum GPA, Veteran status, etc.
We look forward to working with you to design a scholarship that matches your giving priorities.

"Thank you so much for this opportunity. Without this scholarship there is no way I could further my education. I live with my grandmother and there just isn’t enough money. I am the first in my family to attend college. It means the world to my family and it has shown my younger brothers that if they work hard enough, financial aid and scholarships are available for them to further their education."

"We enjoyed attending the annual Scholarship Luncheon. Thank you for seating us with the student who received our scholarship this year. She is in the Biotechnology program, has a 3.4 cumulative GPA, and will graduate next spring. It was fun to hear about her college experience and her goals for the future. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to next year . . ."
