Mystery Ranch Diversity in the Outdoor Industry Scholarship benefits students at Utah State University. Applicants must be juniors or seniors with a minimum 3.0 GPA who are enrolled in the OPDD program. Preference may be given to applicants whose life experiences promote diversity and increase opportunities for students from historically underserved populations. Preference is given to non-resident students with a record of volunteerism and/or community involvement.

"The scholarship from Mystery Ranch was instrumental in helping me achieve my academic goals throughout my time at USU. It helped alleviate some of the financial burden, while also allowing me to pick up a minor in operations management and supply chains without having to worry about the added expenses. Thanks to the scholarship it allowed me to focus on my schooling and make the most out of my time at college."

- Baylee Vogler | Class of 2023 | CAAS Valedictorian
