About the Scholarship

HELPING IDAHO ADULTS FINISH THEIR DEGREE OR CERTIFICATE

The Idaho Opportunity Scholarship was expanded in 2018 to remove barriers keeping adults who have earned some college credit from returning to school to complete a degree. Eligible applicants may receive up to $3,500 per school year and can renew the scholarship for up to three additional years. If you are entering college for the first time, please visit the Idaho Board of Education website for other scholarship opportunities.
