The Go Idaho! Scholarship Program recognizes our new, first-time undergraduate students who are residents of Idaho with a guaranteed level of scholarship funding. Students who are admitted and meet the following criteria are guaranteed to receive the level of funding listed below from a combination of U of I scholarships. This funding level is guaranteed for up to three additional years with a minimum GPA.
Accredited High School Unweighted GPA
Level of Funding
|Platinum||3.9 - 4.0||$4,000|
|Gold||3.75 - 3.899||$3,000|
|Silver||3.4 - 3.749||$2,000|
|Bronze||3.0 - 3.399||$1,000|
Home school students and students from non-accredited high schools will be considered based on ACT and SAT scores.
New students will receive general, non-department awarded scholarships their first year to meet their guaranteed level of funding. Department awarded scholarships will go to students who have previously attended the U of I to help meet their guaranteed level of funding.
This means, as a new student, you will receive the same dollar amount of scholarships (based on guaranteed level of funding), but it will not be tied to your academic area of study. This process allows you to explore different academic areas of study without losing scholarships if you change your academic major.
By maintaining a minimum University of Idaho GPA, Go Idaho! program qualifiers are guaranteed to receive this level of funding for up to four years. Additional need-based Go Idaho! funds may be available based on the results of your FAFSA.
Award notifications will begin going out Mid-January.
