The Idaho Association of Counties (IAC) Scholarship Fund was created in 1996 and named the Charles Nickel Scholarship Fund in 1997. This scholarship was created to assist children of county employees and children and grandchildren of county elected officials with the increasing cost of college tuition.
Children of county employees (county employees are those who are issued a paycheck by the county) working 20 hours or more per week and the children and grandchildren of county elected officials (assessors, clerks, commissioners, coroners, prosecuting attorneys, sheriff, and treasurer).
Recipients must attend a college, university or vocational/technical school full-time for the 2021-2022 academic year and be enrolled in either an academic or a vocational education program leading towards a degree or certification.
The deadline for the 2021-2022 scholarship is Saturday, February 27, 2021. To download the 2021 IAC Scholarship Application for additional rules and application requirements, please click the download button below.
