According to numerous reports, Utah Valley University gave away about 300 scholarships to high school students. But now they're taking them away since it turned out to be a clerical error.
Administrators at Utah Valley University have apologized, and they're blaming the confusion on a clerical error discovered after they had alerted 300 high school seniors they were eligible for a full-tuition award worth $4,122 a year.
"This is an extremely rare occurrence, but due to an unfortunate, technical glitch in our system, some individuals received scholarship offer letters who did not qualify for the scholarship," university spokesman Chris Taylor said, according to media outlets.
