Students do not apply for this award directly; they must be nominated by their department/program to which they are applying. 

Faculty wishing to solicit funding for the recruitment of a yet to be identified Presidential Doctoral Scholar must submit completed application to the selection committee. See application procedure two for details.

Awards granted under this program are limited to citizens, permanent residents and/or nationals of the United States. This program places particular emphasis on recruitment of members of groups that historically have been underrepresented in these disciplines: African-Americans, Alaskan Natives, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Pacific Islanders.

The nominee must be accepted as a new full-time graduate student for the Fall, in a doctoral program. He/she is expected to be engaged in full-time scholarship/creative activity during the academic year. Each nominee must have an academic record consistent with graduate students in the graduate program. This program is for recruitment of new graduate students. Current doctoral candidates at U-Idaho are not eligible for this award.

New doctoral students involved in any of the science, technology, engineering, mathematics, or biomedical fields normally supported by the National Science Foundation or National Institutes of Health are eligible. A list of eligible programs at the University of Idaho is provided as a guide in the table above.
