Print Article

The University of Idaho announced it has awarded more than $12.8 million in scholarships to support more than 4,700 Idaho residents for the 2017-18 academic year.

For the upcoming year, UI awarded more than $25 million in scholarship support to more than 6,800 undergraduate students from 49 states.

“The University of Idaho is committed to making education affordable for all students, from Idaho and around the nation. Scholarship support is a huge part of that commitment,” said Dan Davenport, director of Student Financial Aid Services. “We understand that a college degree is something worth investing in — and we believe our students are worth investing in, too.”

These scholarships are a combination of merit, need-based and outstanding achievement awards. Many of the scholarships are funded privately by the University of Idaho Foundation, Inc., through the generosity of donors and alumni.

More than half of UI’s students receive federal assistance to help pay for college. UI students will receive an additional $100 million in financial assistance through state and federal programs. Through a combination of scholarships, state and federal financial assistance the University of Idaho will provide more than $125 million to students and families to help pay for college during 2017-18.
