All prospective UTOP students must complete a 2023-2024 FAFSA (in addition to the 2024-2025 FAFSA needed for the Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 semester aid) to be evaluated for possible grant awards to cover the cost of UTOP. The Office of Academic Diversity and Inclusion offers additional scholarship money to help cover the cost of UTOP.

Financial assistance is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Participants are encouraged to pay the $250 participant fee as soon as possible to guarantee their scholarship offer.
