Class of 2021 high school graduating seniors can now apply for Pocatello’s “Promise of Tomorrow Mayoral Scholarship.”

 

Five recipients will be awarded two-year scholarships each totaling $2,000 ($500 per semester) to Idaho State University. The scholarship is meant to push students with difficult circumstances towards their goals in higher education and students who are selected won’t necessarily have a high grade point average but do know their future can be brightened by taking their education past high school, according to Mayor Brian Blad. 

 

“I hope students who have a dream about earning a certificate, associates or bachelor’s degree truly consider applying,” said Mayor Blad. “Students who are driven to learn but need a small nudge are exactly the students I envision this scholarship program helping.”

 

The scholarship is run in partnership between the City of Pocatello and the Pocatello-Chubbuck Chamber of Commerce Foundation. The scholarship is made possible by contributions from Idaho Central Credit Union, ISU Credit Union, DL Evans Bank, Citizens Community Bank, and US Bank.

 

To be eligible, applicants must attend school within the boundaries of Pocatello/Chubbuck School District 25, but can be students in homeschool, online academies, public schools or private schools. The application must be submitted no later than Friday, February 26, 2021 by 5 p.m.

 

The Mayoral Scholarship Committee will then evaluate each application and make awards based on the information provided. The committee will consider financial need, learning goals, and other items that could impede the student’s pursuit of a higher education.

 

Applications are available online at bit.ly/PocatelloPromise2021 and paper copies are available at the Mayor’s Office, 911 N. 7th Avenue, and all high school counselors’ offices. Completed applications will be accepted via email at mayor@pocatello.us with the subject line “Mayoral Scholarship Program” or in-person at the Mayor’s Office.

 

Students with questions about the scholarship can contact Anne Nichols, Administrative Services Manager, at 208-234-6163.
