Chicano Scholarship Archive
Prior to 1970, few Utah Chicanos had attended the University of Utah and even fewer had graduated. Low educational attainment and financial hardship were some of the factors which prevented Utah's Chicano population from pursuing higher education. As a result, a group of University Chicano faculty, community representatives and students felt a need to recognize and encourage those outstanding Chicano students who were willing to provide quality service to the community while maintaining academic excellence.
