When it comes to higher education in Idaho, there is no shortage of options for students that are "going on" from High School.  Whether it is a trade school that prepares students for professional careers with hands-on training or a four-year university that offers bachelor degrees in a wide range of fields--the options are limitless.

One of the greatest hurdles for any student in Idaho and frankly, anywhere, is the ability to afford said education. Each year, students that could and should be going on to pursue higher education don't get the chance to go because of financial restraints--organizations here in Idaho and beyond are working to offer any and every resource possible to make college a possibility for our local young men and women.

The Community Council of Idaho is offering a total of NINE scholarships, each valued at $1,000, that will certainly help students cover everything from books to registration fees. The scholarships are for hispanic men & women in Idaho, in hopes of encouraging this demographic to pursue a degree and ideally making that goal of getting to college a little bit more reachable.
