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 Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Students must be meeting SAP requirements in order to receive any BYU-Idaho Grant.

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.
