Donate to the Scholarship & Endowment Fund

Thanks to the generous contributions of Utah State University's Professional Employees, the Association has awarded over $60,000 in scholarships to over 173 employees and/or their family members since 1989. We are very proud to assist in all education and professional development goals. View past recipients.

Our goal is to award more money to more employees, but we need your help! Sign up to contribute through payroll deduction by filling out your donation form today. If all employees were to donate just $1per month/$12 yr., we would increase our awarding capabilities by approximately $4,000, and more scholarships could be awarded to more employees.
