Since the IAC Scholarship Fund’s implementation in 2003, 158 individual scholarships have been awarded to recipients across Idaho. The scholarship is available to the children of county employees and to the children or grandchildren of county elected officials who will be enrolled at a college, university or vocational/technical school full-time.

The scholarship is funded by county elected officials and employees who make annual contributions through personal donations, auctions, and additional fundraising efforts. The extraordinary efforts and generosity of county elected officials, county employees, and corporate sponsors has made the IAC Scholarship Fund a success for decades, and it will continue to serve as a resource for Idaho students.

The 2025 scholarship application will be available in October. Visit our website to learn more and make a plan to apply here.
