5 Best Scholarships for Idaho Residents

Wednesday, 22 Dec 2010 12:11 PM

If you are an Idaho resident trying to fund your college education, it would be best to look for scholarships in Idaho that are administered by the state’s Board of Education. There are a number of Idaho state scholarships for students studying to become professionals, technical specialists, or for those pursuing a service career to become a doctor, nurse, or teacher. The best scholarships include:
1. The Robert C. Byrd Honors Program: This is a scholarship for Idaho residents who are graduating seniors from an accredited Idaho high school looking to pursue full time vocational, occupational, or academic programs. The selected students get a grant of $1,500 every year for up to four years.

2. The Idaho Governor’s Cup and the Robert R. Lee Promise Category ‘A’ Scholarships: These scholarships are meant for Idaho resident high school seniors with an above average cumulative GPA. A grant amount of $3,000 per year is given for up to four years. While both the Idaho scholarships are intended for the pursuit of professional, technical programs in the state’s colleges or universities and are very competitive, the Governor’s Cup aid program seeks an additional record of community service.
3. The Idaho's Minority/At Risk Student Scholarships: These programs are meant for Idaho state residents who are economically or socially disadvantaged and are unlikely to pursue higher education without state support. The Idaho scholarship is especially for minorities, the disabled, or for those from poor backgrounds and offers a grant of $3,000 a year for up to four years.  
4. The Freedom Scholarship: This scholarship is meant for the dependents of Idaho veterans, who have served in areas of armed conflict and were imprisoned, killed, wounded, or disabled while doing so. The Idaho resident freedom scholarship offers a fee waiver and up to $500 every semester for books, on-campus housing, and allowance for subsistence. Similarly, the Public Safety Officer Dependent Scholarship supports the education of children of Idaho state officers either killed or maimed while on duty.
5. The Tschudy Family Scholarship: The scholarship program is aimed at helping Idaho resident students, who have graduated from Emmett High School. The grant amount of $2,500 is offered for up to five years.
