Scholarship Description

The Idaho Governor's Challenge Scholarship provides approximately 12 awards to Idaho high school seniors planning to attend an Idaho college or university.

The number of awards is conditional on the availability of funds. Awards will be available to scholars pursuing academic and professional-technical education. The $3,000 award is renewable for up to four years for academic scholars, and for the term of the chosen program, up to three years, for professional-technical students.

* Enroll as a full-time student in an academic or technical program at an Idaho college or university (and take the ACT or SAT if you enrolling in an academic program)
