Governor's Cup

The Idaho Governor's Cup Scholarship provides approximately 25 awards, depending on funding, to Idaho high school seniors planning to attend an Idaho college or university.
The number of awards is conditional on the availability of funds. Awards will be available to scholars pursuing academic and professional-technical education. The $3,000 award is renewable for up to four years for academic scholars, and for the term of the chosen program, up to three years, for professional-technical students.


To qualify for the scholarship, a student must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be a resident of Idaho
  • Be a graduating senior of an Idaho high school
  • Enroll as a full-time student in an academic or technical program at an Idaho college or university (and take the ACT or SAT if enrolling in an academic program)
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.8 or above

High consideration for selection will be based on a demonstrated commitment to public service.  Documentation of volunteer work, leadership, and public service is required.  To document volunteer work, leadership, and public services, please complete the necessary supplemental information form found in the Governor’s Cup Scholarship Guidelines.

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, this application will be provided in alternate form upon request.
