As part of the University of Utah’s annual Giving Day campaign, the law school focused on scholarship donations so that we may continue to attract the best and brightest students to our wonderful institution. Scholarships are crucial to the success of the law school. We depend on donations, earnings from our endowments, and some available operating funds to support our students (state funding is generally not used for scholarships). The Giving Day campaign featured a matching $10,000 gift from Jessica Lowrey and Jeff Habib. Dan Johnson and the Utah Tribal Relief Fund also sponsored a $2,000 match for native law student scholarship.
The College of Law had over $35,000 donated with over 100 donors. The previous year’s Giving Day raised around $15,000.
