Horizonte Scholarship

SLCC’s Horizonte Scholarship was established to help graduates from Horizonte Instruction and Training Center, Salt Lake City School District’s alternative high school and adult education center. The center typically supports minority, immigrant and underserved first-generation students, and this scholarship helps graduates reach their goals of gaining professional training or a college degree. It covers 75% of tuition, fees and books for awarded students.

The Horizonte Scholarship was created in 1998 when Horizonte’s principal, James P. Andersen, and his good friend, Dr. Ric Harnsberger, solicited donations and matched contributions from their friends. Over the years, the number and size of these scholarship awards have grown significantly. Mr. Andersen and Dr. Harnsberger are now retired but they, along with Mr. Kimball Young, continue to chair the Horizonte Scholarship Fund and its endowment.
