New Scholarship Opportunity!

Westminster is offering a scholarship to students for $2,000. You do NOT have to attend Westminster in the Fall to qualify. This is open to all senior students in Utah.

It is an essay scholarship and there is no minimum GPA to qualify. The following is the prompt:

“In January 2021, Utah will inaugurate its first new governor in 12 years. If you were able to meet for an hour right before they started the job to discuss what you feel is the most important issue facing the state, what advice would you give the new governor and why? Write an essay in 600 words or less that addresses the question.”

Deadline: Tuesday, December 1, 2020 @midnight
