Snow College Scholarships

One of our highest priorities at Snow College is to increase the amount of scholarship assistance available to incoming and returning students. With nearly 6,000 students and growing steadily, Snow depends on private scholarship support to attract and retain students. Any gift, no matter the size, will change the life of a student in need. Since many of our graduates are first generation students, your giving impacts generations.

Snow aims to provide financial assistance to every student in need. With each donation, we are closer to reaching that goal. Scholarships help to make students’ dreams become a reality and give them the opportunity to reach their goals. You can help lessen the financial burden for students and their families by supporting scholarships. Please consider supporting a Snow student by donating to any already established scholarship, or by establishing a scholarship to leave your legacy.

“…I have large aspirations of becoming an orthodontist one day and I hope to eventually open up my own practice. Snow has provided the perfect academic and social environment for my first few years of college. The small classes have not only allowed me to build a relationship with my professors and classmates, but they have also helped me grasp information more fully. With my busy schedule and difficult classes, scholarship support has allowed me to focus on my studies rather than stressing about my finances. I will forever be grateful for my time spent at Snow College and for the financial assistance I received from generous scholarship donors to make this experience possible.”

Types of scholarships

You can make a gift using cash, bonds, stocks, real estate, bequests, insurance, trusts, and other legal instruments. Scholarship funds can be established as memorial scholarships, or as ways to honor an individual, organization, corporation, or foundation. We will work with you to maximize your gift and fulfill your wishes for the award. See below information regarding annual and endowed schoalrships.

Please contact us at 435.283.7062 or email email address for this person if you are interested in establishing a scholarship.

Annual Scholarships

Annual scholarships are non-invested funds that support immediate scholarship needs. We appreciate donations to any established scholarship.

Gifts to the Snow College General Scholarship Fund are combined with other donor gifts to support students. Unrestricted general scholarship support is especially helpful to ensure we attract, retain, and support students without restriction.

Snow also has a special "Reimagine Scholarship Fund" that specifically supports students with a financial need (not necessarily merit-based). 

You may also choose to give to any already established private scholarship fund.

Annual Named Scholarships

Named scholarships are created with a gift or pledge, payable within 5 years, of $5,000 or more. Donors have the flexibility of giving $1,000 per year for 5 years or breaking the donations out in other ways. Donors can make additional donations to build the fund over time to be converted to a scholarship endowment fund and earn annual interest.

Named scholarships allow donors to choose the name of the scholarship fund, and the awarding/spending criteria for the fund.

Named scholarships can be given in the name of an organization, foundation, corporation, or individual.

General Endowed Scholarship

Endowment gifts remain in perpetuity and earn interest annually, this allows for continuous funding for generations to come.

Establish a named scholarship endowment with a minimum of $25,000. Annual awards go to general scholarships to support students who are most in need, as determined by the Snow College Scholarship Office.

If the fund reaches $35,000, awarding/spending criteria can be chosen by the donor.

Endowed Scholarship

Endowment gifts remain in perpetuity and earn interest annually, this allows for continuous funding for generations to come.

Establish a named scholarship endowment, with donor specified awarding/spending criteria, with a minimum gift of $35,000. Awards are given based on criteria determined by the donor.

You can make a gift using cash, bonds, stocks, real estate, bequests, insurance, trusts, and other legal instruments. If you establish an endowment fund with $35,000 or more, you decide:

  • The basic terms of the award
  • The award level
  • Who is eligible for the scholarship
  • How the recipient is selected
