students awarded UI scholarships
The cost of living continues to increase, but the University of Idaho is working hard to ensure that doesn't impact those seeking an education. More than 6,000 students have been awarded a combined $22 million in scholarship support from the University of Idaho for the 2008-09 academic year.
"Affordability and accessibility for all students is important to the University of Idaho,” said Dan Davenport, director of Admissions and Financial Aid at the university. "Many students qualified for more than one type of financial aid, and we are pleased to provide another stepping stone to help students achieve their dreams."
