*Scholarship Renewal:  Our policy is as follows...  "Our primary goal is to give new students a financial boost. Once you receive an O2S scholarship, you are welcome to reapply for one (1) renewal. Based on the availability of funds for a particular school term, we allocate these funds for new students first and foremost and, if possible, some funds are allocated for returning students. Your renewal application will be considered along with those of all other applicants. There is no guarantee that you will receive an award. Returning students may become eligible for one scholarship renewal only (for a total of two O2S scholarships). To reapply, you need to complete a new application. In addition, please provide your current GPA, a transcript of classes completed, and an update of your 'Statement of Commitment.' You do not need to attend the 'College Preparation' workshop again or provide another 'Letter of Recommendation.' If you have any questions, please contact us at 801-253-0895."

*Important Footnotes:  (A) Scholarship awards are always dependent on the availability of funds for any particular school term. (B) If funds become limited, there will be just one scholarship award per family or household. (C) All funds will be disbursed directly to the educational institutions and not to individual students. (D) The O2S fund does not discriminate based on race, color, religion, or any other prohibited traits.
