Idaho Scholarship Application is Now Open
Dec. 1, 2014 - March 1, 2015
The goal of the State of Idaho Scholarship Program is to provide funding to help Idaho residents attend and complete college. Scholarships do not have to be repaid and can be used at any eligible Idaho college or university. Students who are eligible for Idaho Scholarships have a limited window each year to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. A variety of scholarships are offered with varying requirements. All students are encouraged to examine those requirements and apply at their earliest opportunity.

Professional-Technical Advanced Opportunities, also known as Tech Prep, is
one of the four advanced opportunities recognized by the State Board of
Education, and links approved high school professional-technical programs to
certificate and degree programs at a technical college.

Idaho's Employability Skills for Career-Ready Practice are about ensuring that every PTE student is ready for the next step in their life, whether that be further training or stepping into the workplace. Review and give us your feedback at framework@pte.idaho.gov.
