The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Foundation scholarship application period for the 2024-2025 academic year is now open. Nearly 900 scholarships were awarded to students in both academic and career-technical programs at the College this current academic year.
Scholarships are a great opportunity provided to students at CWI to help pay for their education.
- Scholarships are available for students based on a variety of criteria such as: fields of study, members of underrepresented groups, residency in certain areas, and demonstrated financial need.
- Typically scholarships offered through the College, CWI Foundation, State of Idaho, and other outside sources do not have to be repaid.
Applying for scholarships at CWI is easy with one application. The single scholarship application will provide students with automatically-generated scholarship matches, including over 10,000 external scholarship opportunities, allowing students to self-select scholarships of interest.
When applying for a scholarship at CWI, students must answer a short list of questions. Students are then matched to scholarships for which they are eligible. Some scholarships require additional documentation such as an essay or letter of recommendation, while most are automatically matched to eligible students.
