For students going for the Regents’/Opportunity scholarship, Chemistry 1010 will be offered for second semester. If you are lacking in a upper level course for science, this is a great chance to get this added to your schedule and get the scholarship!
Talk to your counselor if you would like to make a change to include this in your schedule.
Remember, 2022 graduating seniors do have two pathways they can take for this scholarship. Students applying after 2022 will only have the path with the three upper level courses in English, Math and Science.

Opening up on Monday (the same opening day as the Regents ‘/Opportunity Scholarship) is the Utah Jazz Scholarship! Details below.
What is the Utah Jazz Scholarship?
For every Jazz win during the 2020-21 season, the Utah Jazz provided a full, four-year scholarship to students from an underrepresented group.
And we’ve decided to extend the scholarship for another season!
That means for every win the Utah Jazz has during the 2021 – 2022 season, a full scholarship will be awarded to a student in need.
30 scholarships, representing the team’s first 30 wins last season, were awarded for the 2021 – 2022 school year. The remaining 31 scholarships, representing the rest of the team’s wins last year, as well as scholarships that result from additional wins this season will be awarded beginning with the 2022-2023 school year.
What does the scholarship cover?
The award will cover up to the full cost of attendance — including tuition, books, fees, and room and board — for each recipient’s full undergraduate education at one of six universities in the state of Utah.
