eligible for $1000 scholarshiop
Doris Whitley of Prairie High School is among the 429 Idaho students who have been named Boise State Capital Scholars this spring and are eligible to receive a renewable $1,000 scholarship for up to five years to attend Boise State University through the Boise State Capital Scholars academic achievement program. The scholarship fund is endowed by sales proceeds from the Boise State Bookstore.
Honorees, along with their parents or guardians, have been invited to campus for an April 9 recognition event. They must attend the program in Boise to be eligible for the scholarship. The Boise State Capital Scholars itinerary includes campus tours, discussions with academic deans, and demonstrations highlighting research and teaching. Activities culminate with an evening dinner and awards program where students will receive the renewable $1,000 scholarship to Boise State for up to five years.
Selection to the Boise State Capital Scholars is based on college entrance examination scores and class rankings. All Idaho high school juniors who scored in the top 10 percent of the ACT, SAT or PSAT and ranked in the top 10 percent of their high school class have been recognized as Boise State Capital Scholars. The cut-off scores to qualify in the top 10 percent of the college entrance exams were: 27 or higher on the ACT, 1220 or higher on the critical reading and math sections of the SAT, or 122 or higher on the critical reading and math sections of the PSAT.
“The Capital Scholars program is designed to keep our top students in state for their college education with scholarship assistance,” said Bob Kustra, president of Boise State University. “In its third year, the Capital Scholars program reflects our desire to attract the best and brightest students in Idaho and reward them with a renewable scholarship.”
