Thanks to the generous support of numerous individual and organizational donors and benefactors, students in the College of Natural Resources have access to more than 80 scholarships.
New students are considered for all merit- and need-based scholarships as well as all federal financial aid if you submit all your application materials, including the FAFSA application, to Undergraduate Admissions by the Dec. 1 priority date. Qualifying new students who miss this date can still be awarded Go Idaho, Discover Idaho or Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) upon admission to U of I. Visit admissions and financial aid for more information.
Scholarships for students continuing study in the College of Natural Resources are typically based on merit (GPA, SAT/ACT scores), financial need or a combination of both. Most scholarships for continuing students are offered by individual programs within the college and may be based on factors such as academic major or future career plans. Some individual program scholarships require you to submit supporting documentation, such as a resume and statement of career interests. In addition, you must annually submit an up-to-date FAFSA form with the university to be eligible for scholarships requiring proof of financial need.
