Graduate and External Fellowships, Scholarships and Grants

The College of Idaho supports its students in applying for a range of external awards, fellowships, and graduate scholarships. If you have questions or are interested in applying for a grant or award please contact Jen Wallin-Ruschman, Director of Student Research and Creativity. It is best to begin preparing for these awards very far in advance, it is never too early to reach out and express interest or ask questions. Further, this list is far from exhaustive. Feel free to schedule a meeting with Jen to explore a range of possibilities for external funding.
