Since 1996, UOTA has offered an endowed scholarship for both an OT and OTA student yearly. This scholarship, worth $1000, requires you are a UOTA member and enrolled in an entry-level OT or OTA program in Utah.
The scholarship application opens around the end of August each year. AOTF selects an essay topic and picks the scholarship winners. The application requires you submit a resumé and obtain reference letters, so plan early.
Please see the AOTF website for timelines and applications. https://www.aotf.org/Scholarships Go to “how to apply” and provide your email.
2020 Recipient: Lauren Lundstrom
Lauren is a 2020 Graduate of the University of Utah from the Occupational Therapy program. During her time at the U, she had the privilege of working with Dr. Alex Terrill and Jackie Einerson on research projects and people following a stroke. Being an OT has been her goal since she was a junior in high school, and she is excited to finally achieve that goal and is looking forward to putting her skills in practice. Lauren loves spending time with her family, going on hikes, making music, and dreaming of the day that her cakes will look like the ones in all the social media videos.
