Utah Scholars was created to help students in high school take the right classes to get to college, keep their grades up, and help students be more prepared to qualify for scholarships. To receive the StepUp Utah Scholars recognition certificates and medallion you need to have a 3.0 cumulative GPA and complete 20 Next Steps from the grade-by-grade checklists before you graduate from high school. While you can complete these steps at any time, it's best to do several each year so you stay focused and on track. Don't forget to keep track of which Next Steps you complete!
