Governor Brad Little announced the recipients of the 2019 Governor’s Cup Scholarships to Idaho colleges and universities.
 
The 44th Governor’s Cup fund-raising drive brought in enough money for 37 new scholarships to award this year.  
            
Recipients were chosen from among more than 1,000 applicants by the Idaho Governor’s Cup Scholarship Fund Inc.’s 12-member board of directors. Selections were made based on each applicant’s commitment to public service, academic achievement, leadership and community involvement.
 
The award is $3,000 per year, renewable for up to four years, or two to three years for career-technical programs, contingent upon the length of the program.
