The following is a list of scholarships, awards, and opportunities that we, at Orem High School, have had experience with in the past. Most applications are available online.

Dates and availability are subject to change. It is the student’s responsibility to verify scholarship availability, application dates, qualifications and award amounts. This list is provided only as a guide and convenience.
