Distinguished Young Women of Utah is part of a national scholarship program that promotes and rewards scholarship, leadership and talent in young women.
College scholarships are awarded at the state level ($42,500.00 last year) and millions in college-granted scholarships are available ($1 billion nationally). And one representative will advance to the national program in Mobile, Alabama where they give away over $130,000 in cash tuition scholarships.
And it’s FREE to participate!
You must be a junior in high school to participate. Sign up today so you don’t miss out on this life-changing experience!
Young women participate in local programs during their JUNIOR year to qualify for our State program, which is then held during the fall of their SENIOR year. **Once you apply, you will be placed in one of 6 local programs based on your home address. If you do NOT have a local program in your geographic area, you will be placed in the Utah At-Large program. You must participate in the program to which you are assigned.
All local programs for the Class of 2022 have been held.
**Applications for local programs for the Class of 2023 will be accepted starting in the fall of your JUNIOR year for springtime (March-June 2022) programs. At-Large will be held in May 2022. All program dates are posted on local program sites as information becomes available, generally at the start of the new year. Please reach out with any questions. We are eager to help you discover what this program has to offer you!
The State Program for the Class of 2022 will take place October 22-23, 2021.
Please join us for our Class of 2022 Finals and Showcase on Saturday, October 23 at 4:00 pm. The event will be held at Summit Academy Charter School (Junior High) in Draper, Utah.
If you are a member of the Class of 2023, you are welcome to apply now for local programs that will take place in the spring of 2022. A director will follow up with you a few months prior to the start of your local program to provide you with more information. We can't wait for you to participate next year!
