Scholarships

My intended degree is not listed. Do I qualify for scholarships?

No. Scholarships are only available for the degree types listed. Please check back in the future as new scholarships will be added as they become available.

My major area of study is not listed, why?

The 'major area of study or program' selections are the same as those listed in the CWI catalog. The list of available majors is based on your choice for the field 'Exp. Degree'. Please verify the correct response to 'Exp. Degree' in order to have the appropriate choice appear in the 'Major area of study or program' field.

My scholarship award notification mentions the requirement for a Thank You note before my scholarship funds are disbursed. Why?

It is important that scholarship recipients acknowledge scholarship awards with a thank you note to the donor or organization that made the award possible. Thank You notes can be uploaded via the CWI online scholarship application, mailed to the Office for Institutional Advancement or emailed to scholarships@cwidaho.cc. This is a requirement.

Scholarship recipients who do not complete a Thank You note will not receive their scholarship funding. Please contact the Scholarship Coordinator at scholarships@cwidaho.cc if you need any assistance with completing this requirement.

Some scholarships have a different application deadline or indicate "deadline to be announced". Do I need to submit a separate application for those scholarships?

No, you may apply for all scholarships with one application. However, recipients of scholarships with alternate deadlines will not be announced until after their respective deadlines.

There are several questions on the online scholarship application that refer to PTE programs. I am enrolled in an Associate of Science (AS) or Associates of Arts (AA) degree. Do I still qualify for scholarships?

Yes. There are scholarships available for students enrolled in AA and AS degrees. Please select 'I am not enrolled in a PTE program' and you will be considered for those scholarships.

What if I do not know my enrollment plans?

Please make your best assessment of your enrollment plans. Some scholarships have enrollment requirements. If you do not meet enrollment requirements at the time the scholarship is disbursed to your account your scholarship will either be adjusted or denied. Enrollment requirements are listed when you apply for the scholarship. All scholarships have a minimum enrollment requirement of 6 credits.

What if my student ID is not 7 numbers?
