The BYU-Idaho Student Financial Aid Office offers various awards to students who have need or who demonstrate outstanding achievements in academics, leadership, service, talent, or major. Some awards combine merit with need. These awards are provided through sacred resources of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and offerings of generous donors to the University. They represent an investment in students' education and are given to enhance students' physical, spiritual, and intellectual growth.
