This scholarship portal allows students to apply for all CWI Foundation Scholarships in one location. College of Western Idaho Foundation offers students the opportunity to apply for scholarships that can help finance your education. Scholarships are competitive, but do not assume you cannot receive one. The CWI Foundation offers scholarships for a variety of students and the qualifications for GPA and financial need vary. Scholarships are a great source of free money available to students who meet certain eligibility requirements. Scholarship applications will be reviewed by a scholarship committee to determine that eligibility is met.
