Scholarship deadlines vary widely (Note: February & March are BIG deadline months for the following Fall semester), so don't miss out on local and regional opportunities!
Also check with your college or university of interest for scholarships offered by those institutions.
Important deadlines are in February and March for Idaho Seniors for both FAFSA and the College Board Financial Profile. Do check with your school of interest about THEIR deadlines for scholarship applications and financial aid submission deadlines.
TIP: You do not NEED to have your previous year's taxes filed prior to completing a FAFSA or College Board Financial Profile, so don't wait. You will provide estimates and then update the application once taxes have been filed.
Federal Work-Study jobs help students earn money to pay for college or career school. Undergraduate and graduate students with work-study jobs will work part-time on or off-campus while enrolled.
Federal Pell Grants are usually awarded only to undergraduate students. The amount of aid you can receive depends on your financial need, the cost of attendance at your school, and more.
It's never too early to start thinking about your child's education, and to get them involved in the process. Consider a savings program, such as a 529 Plan (A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged savings plan designed to encourage saving for future college costs. 529 plans, legally known as “qualified tuition plans,” are sponsored by states, state agencies, or educational institutions and are authorized by Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Idaho's College Saving Program is called IDeal.
