How to Apply
The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) assists students who have qualifying migrant/seasonal farm work backgrounds by providing financial and academic support services.
The overall goal of CAMP is to increase the enrollment and graduation rate of migrant/seasonal farm workers or children of such workers at institutions of higher education. To accomplish this goal, the University of Idaho seeks participants, including those who may not be typical college-bound students.
To qualify for CAMP, applicants must be a:
- U.S. Citizen or a Permanent Resident of the United States AND meet one of the following conditions:
- Spent a minimum of 75 days in the production of agriculture over the past 24 months of migrant/seasonal farmwork. These days can be logged by the student personally or through his or her immediate family.
- Participated in a Chapter 1 Migrant Education Program or be eligible to participate in one.
- Qualify for the federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA) under section 167.
In addition, applicants must be admitted to the University of Idaho and demonstrate academic and financial need.
CAMP recommends students apply fall semester of their senior year before Dec. 1.
By applying before the December 1st deadline, students ensure they are eligible for the maximum scholarship consideration at the University of Idaho.
