The Young Alumni Board of Directors is composed of University of Utah alumni who have graduated within the past 15 years. The board's mission is to sponsor and implement programs that contribute to the goals of the Alumni Association. Members organize and participate in events that benefit the community, the University and its students, and encourage involvement among other young alumni and the University community.

The Young Alumni Board works to foster education, by providing opportunities for students, and to recognize the achievements of University alumni. The board offers yearly scholarships to students who have contributed to the community and the University through their academic achievements and enthusiastic involvement in scholastic and community activities. The board currently gives multiple graduate and undergraduate scholarships each year. Scholarship proceeds are raised through the annual Homecoming Scholarship 5K & Kids Run, which takes place every year on Homecoming day. Runners in all age categories participate, and the event promises fun for everyone!

The Young Alumni Board also presents the Par Excellence Award each year to an outstanding alumnus/a who has graduated within the last 15 years. The award, presented at the Annual Spring Awards Banquet, recognizes the achievements and accomplishments of an individual who has given outstanding service to the University, the community and his/her profession.
