Gov. Brad Little presented scholarships to students who received the Idaho Governor’s Cup Scholarship during ceremonies at the Idaho State Capitol on Tuesday in Boise.

Altogether, 40 students received the scholarships — 25 of whom will be attending an academic program at an Idaho college or university and 15 who are participating in a career technical education program. The scholarships are for $3,000 per year and are renewable for four years for a college or university program and renewable for three years in career technical programs. 

The 40 recipients were selected from a pool of more than 3,500 applicants, Little said. 

“Everybody in this room epitomizes what it really means to get a higher education here and beyond,” Little told the students and their parents. “I want to congratulate all of you for your hard work, what you have done and also congratulate your parents.”

Money for the scholarships is raised through the Idaho Governor’s Cup, an annual event that attracts business leaders, lobbyists, elected officials and politically connected donors for a golf tournament, fly fishing, shooting and social events in Sun Valley. 

Former Gov. Cecil Andrus created the nonprofit Idaho Governor’s Cup in 1974. 

Scholarships are need- and merit-based and open to students graduating from an Idaho high school or home school or participating in the first year of a career technical education program. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.8 or better.
