About University of Utah - Hope Corps

The mission of the Hope Corps, in partnership with Utah Community Builders, is to assist and lift the businesses and people of Utah.

The Hope Corps fulfills this mission by bringing together students from across the state to identify innovative solutions that will ensure the viability of Utah’s community. The Corps came together due to the COVID-19 pandemic when, despite major efforts by the federal and state governments, they noticed that some businesses and individuals were “falling through the cracks.” Whether due to lack of awareness of the support offered, lack of eligibility to apply, or simply shortage in capacity, it was the Corps’ belief that there was more to be done – and that students have the passion and the ingenuity to make a difference.

Students may be eligible for course credit via their home institution and/or for a small stipend via the Hope Corps program.
