The Utah Valley University President’s National Advisory Board (NPAB) has selected UVU junior and finance major Sean Beardsley as the recipient of the Stephen R. Covey Leadership and Community Service Scholarship for fall semester. The $6,000 scholarship was established in honor of Stephen R. Covey, a former member of the NPAB.

“Along with academic excellence, Sean has demonstrated leadership on campus and in the community,” said Jack Sunderlage, chairman of the NPAB. “His goal to pursue a career in healthcare administration and his personal commitment to excellence exemplifies the very qualities that represent the Covey legacy.”

Beardsley will use the scholarship to complete an internship in Washington, D.C. He will work closely with Senator Orrin Hatch and the Senate Finance Committee.

“I am excited to begin my internship,” Beardsley said. “The finance committee is extremely important for our nation because it oversees Medicaid, Medicare, health programs, tariffs, social security, trade agreements and other important programs. I am grateful for this opportunity and the scholarship. Because the internship is unpaid, the scholarship is vital to making this possible.”
