THE SUMMER CITIZENS SCHOLARSHIP
In September of 1985 leaders of the Summer Citizens Program initiated a scholarship fund at Utah State University. The purpose of this fund is to provide an enduring expression of gratitude to USU and to the people of Cache Valley for their hospitality. The Fund is a symbol of the satisfying relationships among those persons who make their summer homes in Cache Valley, the university, and the community. Recipients of awards from this Fund are known as Summer Citizens Scholars. Summer Citizens Scholars typically are those students who demonstrate financial need, personal integrity and academic achievement.
Recipients are graduates of a Cache County or City of Logan high school, legal residents of the county and citizens of the United States. Special consideration is given to recipients who would be unable to pursue a higher education without financial assistance.
Since the fund began in 1992, we have raised over $55,000!
How to Donate
You can donate to the scholarship fund when you register online. You can donate any amount you choose from a few dollars to larger donations. The amount of your donation will be charged with your registration fees. You can also donate throughout the summer at the Summer Citizens Office in the lower level of the Eccles Conference Center, room 103.
If every Summer Citizen donated just $10 each, we could add at least $6,000 to the scholarship every year! Please donate what you can this year!
