Shumway eligible for scholarship
Kyler Shumway of Prairie High School is among the 400 Idaho high school juniors who have been named Boise State Capital Scholars this spring and 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.
Honorees have been invited to Boise State on April 14 along with their parents or guardians for 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. Capital Scholars must attend the April 14 program in Boise to be eligible for the scholarship.
Selection is based on college entrance examination scores and class rankings. All Idaho high school juniors who score in the top 10 percent of the ACT, SAT or PSAT and rank in the top 10 percent of their high school class are recognized as Boise State Capital Scholars. The cut-off scores to qualify in the top 10 percent of the college entrance exams are: 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.
