Here at BYU-Idaho we call university scholarships, BYU-Idaho Grants. Grants are determined based on financial need and/or merit. BYU-Idaho Grants may not be transferred to different semesters unless a student is officially deferring for a mission in which case some awards may be deferred. There are no exceptions to this policy. BYU-Idaho Grants may not be combined to exceed the full LDS tuition rate except for some talents grants.

BYU-Pathway Worldwide students are not eligible for a BYU-Idaho Grant but are eligible to receive private scholarships outside the university.

Types of BYU-Idaho Grants


BYU-Idaho Thomas E. Ricks Grant Application

To be evaluated for BYU-Idaho grants, students must complete the following:

  • BYU-Idaho Thomas E. Ricks Grant Application
  • Corresponding FAFSA for U.S. citizens and eligible noncitizens (to be considered for maximum eligibility)
    • International and DACA students are not required to submit FAFSA.

Financial Aid Determination Date (FADD)

Students must be enrolled in the correct number of credits by the FADD of each semester to prevent losing the grant. BYU-Idaho counts all program applicable and non-program applicable credits as enrollment for BYU-Idaho grants.
