Young Humanitarian Award


Though our society recognizes young people for their accomplishments in sports and academics, the Youthlinc Utah Young Humanitarian Award celebrates outstanding humanitarian service among youth, sponsored by the George S. & Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation. Youthlinc has organized this annual statewide search since 2005.

One overall winner will receive a $5,000 college scholarship. One runner-up will receive a $3,000 college scholarship. Three runner-ups will receive a $1,000 college scholarship. Five honorable mentions will receive a $500 college scholarship.

Applicants must be a junior or senior in a Utah high school or must be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate college or University program in the state of Utah.
