Suazo Community Scholarship
The Senator Pete Suazo Leadership Foundation was founded in November 2001, shortly after the tragic death of the late Senator Suazo. The Foundation was established at the University of Utah to honor the legacy and commitment of the Senator.
The Foundation provides one to three $1,000 scholarships and one $500 internship stipend (local internships only) per semester for ethnic minority students enrolled at the University of Utah who demonstrate a passion for community service.
