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 ($35,000.00 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 of our programs for the Class of 2021 have been held.
**Applications for local programs for the Class of 2022 will be accepted starting in the fall of your JUNIOR year for springtime (March-June) programs. At-Large is generally held in June. 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!
