The Capital Scholars Program
The Capital Scholars Program recognizes Idaho’s outstanding high school Juniors who not only rank in the top ten percent of their class but also score within the top ten percent of a national standardized test. 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. Students must have completed one of the aforementioned exams by January of their Junior year to qualify.
Selected honorees are invited, along with their parents or guardians, to an on campus program to recognize their achievements. During the program each Capital Scholar receives a renewable $1000 scholarship to Boise State University for up to five years of undergraduate studies. Students must attend the program and enroll at Boise State University the semester immediately following their high school graduation to accept the scholarship.
Students will be notified in mid March if they have been selected as Capital Scholars.
