What is the Trailblazer Promise Scholarship?
The Trailblazer Promise, or Utah Promise, Scholarship is a “last dollar” scholarship created from a needs-based program in Utah. These “last dollar” funds are applied to qualified students after all other aid is applied to a recipient’s account, to fill the gap of what has been offered and the student’s tuition and mandatory student fees.
What other aid is considered first?
Federal Pell Grant and institutional scholarships will be applied to a student’s account first. Then any other state aid such as Regents, Opportunity, New Century, etc, will be applied next. Finally, any third party/private scholarships intended specifically for tuition and fees only will be applied.
After all that aid is applied to a student’s account, the Trailblazer Promise will go in and cover the rest of your base tuition and mandatory student fees.
If Trailblazer Promise funds are applied or paid, and a student receives any additional Federal Pell Grant, institutional or state scholarships, the Promise funds will be reduced.
