Our institutional award covers basic registration fees/tuition and the university-defined cost for room and board for a traditional undergraduate living in a U of I residence hall. National Merit Scholar finalists are also directly admitted to the University Honors Program if they choose to enroll at the University of Idaho their first semester of undergraduate studies.

University Honors Program students are highly encouraged to engage in undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activities. Our program offers grant monies each year of up to $1,500 per student engaging or planning on engaging in such opportunities.
