The scholarship program is in its third year. Each two-year scholarship awards the student $2000, or $500 per semester, to use at Idaho State University.

The Mayoral Scholarship Committee reviewed and selected the awardees based on possible roadblocks to higher education, personal and higher education goals, and financial need.
