First Degree Scholarship’s goal is to help those who are the first in their family to obtain a college degree.  Scholarship recipients will receive mentoring through high school and college, which will help them prepare for success in their post-high school education and career.


The scholarship is for high school sophomores who reside in Salt Lake County, Utah.  Students are not eligible if a parent or stepparent has graduated with a bachelor’s degree from a college or university in the United States.
