The following table outlines merit-based awards for incoming Idaho freshman*. These renewable awards are based on being admitted tentatively by the March 1 Priority Deadline and having your 7th semester or 10th trimester transcripts on file with the Admissions Office. In the case of budgetary limitations, priority will be given to students based on the date of returned, completed Award Letters and Scholarship Contracts.
Effective with the 2020-2021 academic year, institutional policy limits students to only one of the following scholarship offers per academic year: Foundation Scholars, Laura Moore Cunningham or LCSC merit scholarships (Presidential, Provost and Dean). Students may, however, be offered other institutional scholarships in combination with these.
