The Utah Office of Multicultural Affairs (MCA) aims to engage all Utah youth in leadership and enrollment in higher education and career & technical education programs upon high school completion. One way MCA works towards this goal is hosting an annual Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit for 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students, educators and community members. The Summit is held in the fall with the majority of attendees from along the Wasatch Front. In an effort to expand engagement MCA will provide four travel grants in the amount of $400 each to selected Utah schools with 7th, 8th, and 9th grades.
This grant is open to Utah public and charter schools with grades 7, 8, and 9. Schools who meet the following
will be provided priority funding, but all are encouraged to apply.
Applicants from schools located in the following counties are given higher preference: Beaver, Box Elder, Carbon, Daggett, Duchesne, Emery, Garfield, Grand, Iron, Kane, Millard, Piute, Rich,
SanJuan, Sevier, Summit, Tooele, Uintah, Wasatch, Washington and Wayne
Selected schools must be committed and meet the expectation of having at least 20 attendees and up to 2
chaperones at the Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit 2018 being held in Salt Lake County during the
month of October. The exact location and date will be announced in April 2018.
Travel grants may only be used for transportation and/or lodging expenses for the Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit 2018. This grant is not available for any other event or future summits. Grants will be disbursed through a check payable to the grantee school name. Grantees are required to
submit copies of receipts of lodging and transportation expenses 15 days after the Leadership Summit.
Grantee requirement (once granted): attendee list, actual cost report, copies of lodging and transportation
receipts, post phone conference with MCA staff, and student and chaperone experience statement(s).
