Idaho LAUNCH grants go live Oct. 3, sign up now for alerts!
The application window for the Idaho LAUNCH grants opens Oct. 3!
LAUNCH is a game changer for our young Idahoans.
Through LAUNCH, Idaho is recognizing that hundreds of career paths after high school deserve our support by offering up to $8,000 to cover the costs of an education or training program that leads to an in-demand career.
These are ‘real world’ jobs Idaho employers desperately need to fill.
Idahoans can sign up now at https://nextsteps.idaho.gov/launch to get notified when high school seniors are able to apply.
To qualify for a LAUNCH grant, students must:
Be a graduate (class of 2024) from an Idaho high school, home school, or GED
Be an Idaho resident
Be enrolled in or have applied to an eligible Idaho institution
Begin enrollment by Fall semester after graduation
