Huntsman Scholar Program
The Huntsman Scholar Program is a highly selective undergraduate business and economics program offered to a select group of Direct Admit students into the Huntsman School. We are looking for, in Jon Huntsman’s words, “the individual sense of purpose and integrity,” in addition to academic excellence. Thus, our selection criteria include not only academic record, but examples of ethical leadership, entrepreneurial spirit, and career focus.
Students receive a $2,000 annual scholarship for up to four years (can be deferred for up to two years), a fully-funded global learning experience, and participate in curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular experiences. Students are assigned faculty mentors on Day 1 and have the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with faculty, staff, alumni, and fellow students through specially designed activities.
Once selected, students are assigned into sections of 40-50 students. Each section is led by a faculty mentor who meets with students individually, in small groups, and with the entire section each semester. The focus of the mentoring is to provide students an avenue to discuss career and life goals and for faculty mentors to assist with and to assess career development.
