    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)

    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    Consider in-state tuition and tuition reciprocity

    In-state tuition allows residents of a state to receive cheaper tuition for a college or university in their state. Additionally, many universities and colleges reserve scholarships and financial aid for in-state students, which helps reduce the cost of attending college for those who live there.

    Here are a few well-known Idaho universities and their in-state vs out-of-state tuition costs:

    University of Idaho

    • In-state tuition: $8,816

    • Out-of-state tuition: $27,076

    Being an Idaho resident can significantly reduce the cost of tuition for Idaho colleges and universities. In order to become a resident for tuition purposes in Idaho, you will have to continuously reside in Idaho for 12 months prior to the semester in which residency is sought. Additionally, you will need to provide proof of a physical presence in Idaho such as utility statements, rental agreements and documentation from an Idaho employer. 

    Does Idaho offer tuition reciprocity?
