4-H scholarship deadline is Saturday

Those who are interested in attending a college or university and would like to apply for a 4-H college scholarship will need to complete their online FAFSA and submit an application through the University of Idaho by Saturday.

This means, students will need to submit an application and all applicable documents (e.g. unofficial transcripts) to the UI prior to the deadline as well.

This is the application process for all 4-H scholarships, but not for some local scholarships.

The UI online application process is used to collect all information needed in one database. This does not mean that the applicant must attend the UI. If selected, the applicant will receive notification from the state 4-H office. If going to another college or university, the applicant must submit a request to the state 4-H office for their scholarship funds to be sent to the institution of their choice.

The Applying to the University of Idaho Guide online has been update and gives detailed, step-by-step instructions on how and where to apply for a 4-H college scholarship, in-cluding examples of what a quality scholarship application should look like upon submission.

Applications are currently open through University of Idaho Admissions at www.uidaho.edu/admissions/apply
