about ed opps  



“Of all the civil rights for which the world has struggled and fought for 5000 years, the right to learn is undoubtedly the most fundamental. We must insist upon this to give our children the fairness of a start which will equip them with such an array of facts and such an attitude toward truth that they can have a real chance to judge what the world is and what its greater minds have thought it might be!”
-W.E.B. DuBois (1949)



Ed Opps has a three-fold mission centered on providing young immigrants access to post-secondary education:

  • Educate the community regarding the experiences and potential contributions of young immigrants.

  • Advocate for immigrants in pursuit of higher education and provide resources and navigational tools to these students.

  • Motivate students by providing post-secondary scholarships for those who are not FAFSA-eligible.


Since 2010...

Ed Opps has awarded over 200 scholarships to first-generation students attending eight different college and universities in Utah. Your support would be the assistance these students need to accomplish their Dreams. As Rico, who was one of our first scholarship recipients, stated:

"Most importantly, the scholarship has given me confidence in who I am. It made me realize… that my immigrant status does not affect the type of person I am. I know I am capable of fulfilling my dreams no matter what barriers are placed in front of me.” - U Dream Scholarship recipie
