$5,000 Scholarship for Utah Young Humanitarians

posted Jan 27, 2014, 8:29 AM by Larissa Little

$5,000 Scholarship for Utah Young Humanitarians,sw

Are you a young person who volunteers? A $5,000 college scholarship could be 

the recognition you deserve for your efforts to give back to your community.

“Most of the applicants for the Youthlinc Utah Young Humanitarian Award don’t 

think they are worthy of the award,” says 2013 Utah Young Humanitarian award 

winner, Megan Dolle, who volunteers with refugees. “They need a teacher or a 

service supervisor to encourage them, but really this about knowing your worth.” 

Megan is a University of Utah student who has also volunteered with Salt Lake 

County youth government and has traveled internationally to do service.

Over the last nine years, there have been nearly 600 student applicants for the 

award. Each young person has had a unique area of focus in helping others. 

Past winners of the award have volunteered mentoring youth, working with 

refugees and the homeless, increasing HIV/AIDS awareness, fighting for social 

equality, or simply spreading small acts of kindness. 

2014 applications for this $5,000 college scholarship are now available on the 

Youthlinc website , due March 19. There are three $1,000 

runner up awards. 

The Award program, which is in its tenth year, is open to all high school junior 

and seniors, and undergraduate college students in Utah, who are U.S. citizens 

or legal residents. Funding is provided by George & Dolores Eccles Foundation. 

Information packets have been mailed to scholarship counselors and service club 

advisors throughout Utah. 

Youthlinc Executive Director Judy Zone says the idea for this Award – the state’s 

largest service scholarship-- arose from the Youthlinc Service Year, in which over 

2,000 Utah students have contributed over 150,000 hours of local service. “In 

the past fifteen years, we’ve seen young people pass through our program and 

become enthusiastic about service. So we have known for a long time that youth 

are willing to pitch in, if given an opportunity and the inspiration to help.”

Rametta, Youthlinc Local Service Director or 801-467-4417.
