This scholarship is the product of the university’s appreciation for the rigor and integrity of the International Baccalaureate curriculum. The College of Idaho has an education that makes IB students uniquely prepared and will help you thrive wherever you go. As a fact, IB students comprise 11 percent of the freshman class and the four-year retention rate for IB students is 91 percent.
