Scholarships

Our Top Priority

The success of our students — throughout their lifetimes is the single most important measure of Boise State’s success as a university. Scholarship support helps provide access to an affordable education for talented and committed students. Scholarships allow students to explore future opportunities to their fullest potential, unhindered by financial uncertainty and help ensure that great potential is not left unrealized because of an inability to bear the cost of a university education.
