The Utah Association of School Psychologists (UASP) empowers Utah school psychologists by:
UASP Minority Scholarship Award
The Utah Association of School Psychologists’ Minority Scholarship was established to assist in meeting the need for increasing the number of diverse school psychologists in Utah. It is the intent of UASP to promote opportunities for the recruitment of school psychologists responsive to the ethnic, cultural and linguistic backgrounds of the individual children who are part of the increasingly diverse population of Utah. The UASP Minority Scholarship also aims to help relieve the financial pressures of our minority scholars pursuing graduate study in school psychology. UASP will award one award of $1,000.00 to a qualified and selected minority graduate student of school psychology in Utah.
The scholarship funds are to be used for graduate school related expenses (i.e. tuition, books, etc.)
The documents requested under Application Deadline and Procedures will be reviewed by the UASP Minority Scholarship Selection Committee. The Selection Committee will consider many factors in reaching their decision, including the completeness of the application; the applicant’s experience, interests and growth as reflected on their resume; the applicant’s statement of professional goals, accomplishments, references, and degree of academic scholarship. This Scholarship is awarded on a nondiscriminatory and objective basis to the most deserving candidate(s).
Application Deadline and Procedures
To be considered for the award, the entire application package MUST be received in the UASP office no later than January 31, 2021. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered and will not be returned.
