For another year, the First Ascent Scholars Program is partnering with a donor interested in providing scholarships in support of American Indian students. Please share the following scholarship opportunity with your Title VI or other eligible students with demonstrated financial need. First Ascent Scholars, a Jeff and Helen Cardon Foundation and David Eccles School of Business partnership, cultivates, encourages and enables academically focused students from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds to: · Attend the Eccles School, · Connect with the University of Utah, local and global community, and · Reach their full academic potential. Scholars are expected to give back to the broader community through volunteer work, engagement in First Ascent activities, and in their academic commitment at the Eccles School. In return the First Ascent Scholarship provides the opportunity for incoming college freshmen to engage in all college has to offer. Scholarship funds cover unmet financial need, room and board, fees, health insurance (if needed), tutoring costs, travel and more, to help scholars focus on achieving their academic best.
