Boise, ID (STL.News) Governor Brad Little announced the recipients today of the 2021 Governor’s Cup Scholarships to Idaho colleges and universities. Last year’s Governor’s Cup fundraising drive brought in enough money for 27 new scholarships to be awarded this year, despite the cancellation of the annual event.
Recipients were chosen from among more than 2,000 applicants by the Idaho Governor’s Cup Scholarship Fund Inc.’s 14-member board of directors. Selections were made based on each applicant’s commitment to public service, academic achievement, leadership, and community involvement.
The award is $3,000 per year, renewable for up to four years, or two to three years for career-technical programs, contingent upon the length of the program.
Here are this year’s recipients, along with their high schools and the schools they will attend in the fall:

Sara Alsaifi – Timberline High School – Attending Boise State University
Kali Branstetter – Weiser High School – Attending Boise State University
