Your Future!

Go Idaho!
Scholarship Program

What is the Go Idaho! Program?

The Go Idaho! Program guarantees a level of scholarship funding to students who graduate from an accredited Idaho high school with an unweighted 3.0 GPA or higher. Home-schooled students and students from non-accredited high schools are considered based on ACT and SAT scores. Don’t leave money on the table – see if there’s an award waiting for you!

Our Promise to You

If you maintain continuous enrollment and a GPA of 2.5 or better as a U of I student, your scholarship award level through the Go Idaho! Program scholarship award will be guaranteed each year for all four years. With an eye toward providing a quality education and preparing you for future success, it's one more way that U of I is investing in you.

Qualifying for Go Idaho!

The four levels of Go Idaho! Program funding are based on a student's accredited high school unweighted GPA. Through a combination of U of I scholarships, Idaho residents entering U of I directly from high school are guaranteed this level of funding each year for a total of four years.
