Innovations Concurrent Enrollment Scholarship
The Innovations Scholars Program was created to help students pay for concurrent enrollment costs:
- Tuition (up to $50)
- Books (up to $350)
- Supplies (up to $100)
The amount paid, up to $500, is based upon the syllabi of each class. Students must apply every semester.
- All applications must be submitted to the office. Check with your mentor or the counselor for dates.
- Applications will be located in the main office.
- Minimum of a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
- Passing grades in each concurrent class. Failing grades will result in being ineligible for future scholarships.
- Minimum of 90% attendance at Innovations is required. You are still a high school student even if you have college classes. Print and attach proof of attendance.
- Minimum of 8 hours of community service. Attach documentation of community service hours to this application. You can volunteer in many places. Ask the counselor if you need ideas or clarification.
- Books and supplies from this scholarship are the property of Innovations. Books are to be returned to the Innovations Office at the end of the semester. If books are lost or damaged students will be responsible for the replacement cost of the book.
How does the team determine who receives a scholarship?
Each application will be reviewed using the same rubric. That rubric is available in the office for parents and students to view.
How often does my student need to apply?
Students will need to apply for every semester that they are taking concurrent enrollment courses and would like to be considered to receive funding.
What will the scholarship money be used on?
Funding will go towards Concurrent Enrollment tuition, books and supplies. This scholarship cannot be applied to Early Enrollment tuition, books or supplies.
How does my student receive their scholarship?
Innovations will work directly with the Salt Lake Community College to pay for what the student has earned funding for.
What if my student doesn’t meet all eligibility requirements for the scholarship?
We encourage all interested students who meet a majority of the eligibility requirements to apply. Funds will be distributed to students who score highest on the rubric first.
Is preference given for grade levels?
No, all students will be graded on the same criteria and rubric and will be awarded scholarships based on those factors.
What if my student fails one of their courses?
If a student fails their course, they are required to refund Innovations the cost of the tuition, books and supplies and are not eligible to receive scholarship funding the following semester.
What if my student loses or damages one of the books?
All books are property of Innovations and are to be returned at the end of the semester. If the books are lost or damaged beyond normal wear and tear, the student is responsible to pay the cost to replace the textbook (new purchase price).
