*Students starting Spring 2015 should contact the Financial Aid office for information about the Go Idaho! program.

Instate Chart 2014

The Go Idaho! program recognizes our Idaho students with academic merit scholarships. Qualified students in prior years received average funding levels listed above in a combination of university scholarships.

Award notifications will begin in early December.

Platinum Level - Approximately $4,000 per year
($16,000 four-year value)

Gold Level - Approximately $3,000 per year                                        
($12,000 four-year value)

Silver Level - Approximately $1,500 per year
($6,000 four-year value) 

By maintaining a minimum U-Idaho GPA, Go Idaho! Scholars are guaranteed to receive the qualifying level of funding for up to four years. That's a scholarship for four-years to help with the cost of your tuition and fees!

Additional need-based Go Idaho! funds may be available based on the results of your FAFSA.

Transfer Scholarships

We offer merit scholarships for qualifying transfer students. You will automatically be considered for these awards with a complete admission application (including transcripts) submitted by February 15. There are no separate applications for scholarships. 

Additional need-based funds may be available based on the results of your FAFSA.
