The Idaho Career Information System, provides an exceptional Financial Aid Information database. This database provides general guidelines for pursuing financial aid, and displays descriptions of over 1,000 specific sources of scholarships, loans and other awards. Information in the description of each source includes dollar amounts and the number of awards available, requirements of applicants, selection criteria, procedures for applying, and whom to contact. Simply select the scholarship category that applies to you, or select several. Examples include scholarship, family heritage, financial need, Idaho residency, racial background, disabilities, gender, or religious affiliation. One high school senior invested time in researching these scholarships, and received enough awards to fund all four years of her college education. Time well spent! Access provided in the Career Services Office only.
