U Giving Day 2021 is a 1,850-minute fundraising and celebration effort February 23-24. The third university-wide giving event challenges students, alumni, staff, faculty, parents, and friends to imagine more for the University of Utah and the programs near to their hearts. U Giving Day will raise critical funding to ensure that the university continues to support our community and provide future students with opportunities to gain an education and succeed.

The School for Cultural and Social Transformation (Transform) is excited to announce our participation in the University of Utah’s 2021 U Giving Day! We ask for your help in spreading the word to reach our goal of raising $5,000 toward the Transform Dolores Huerta Scholarship for Social Justice Community Engagement.

Should you choose to participate, the first $2,500 donated to the Scholarship will be doubled by Dean Stockton! Save the date on your calendar or sign up for our newsletter, Transformative Perspectives, to get a reminder when U Giving Day starts and information on the latest developments in our school.

What is the Transform Dolores Huerta Scholarship?

The Transform Dolores Huerta Scholarship for Social Justice Community Engagement provides a platform for students to gain experience and access to mentors for a new way of thinking about and applying the information gained in the classroom. This scholarship also supports students as they participate in community-engaged social justice work via an internship within the School for Cultural and Social Transformation (Transform) or a project of their own design.

Why donate to the Transform Dolores Huerta Scholarship?

Through internships and community-engaged learning, we assist our students in putting their intellectual excitement to work with trusted community organizations. We place high value on community-engaged learning that enables students to gain lived experience, develop mentorship networks, and build new ways of applying knowledge gleaned in the classroom.

Your contribution will help us establish a scholarship that will facilitate our own student-leaders’ efforts to put ideas from the classroom into forceful motion to change the world.

Can’t wait until February 23? You can give now!
