The Office of Indian Education has announced a new scholarship for Idaho tribes, available through Boise State starting Spring 2023. This scholarship is for members of Idaho’s five federally-recognized Native American tribes who are attending Boise State University or who plan to attend in the future. The scholarship is worth up to $5,000 per academic year and is available to both Undergraduate and Graduate students. This scholarship also never requires students to reapply.
HOW TO APPLY
New applicants to Boise State will automatically be considered based on the information on their admission application. Continuing students may apply online to provide documentation of Tribal Membership to Student Financial Services.
Idaho residency is not required in order to be eligible for this scholarship. Students must, however, be degree-seeking and able to provide a copy of tribal membership for one of the following federally-recognized Native American tribes:
- Coeur d’Alene
- Nez Perce
Approved students may attend Boise State at the tuition rate of $60 per credit. Other institutional, program and/or class fees still apply.
Courses listed on the Alternative Fee Programs website are not eligible for the scholarship.
Boise State University is committed to increasing educational access to all populations, including Native American students.
