BOISE Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced the recipients recently of the 2018 Governor’s Cup Scholarships to Idaho colleges and universities. The 43rd Governor’s Cup fund-raising drive brought in enough money for 36 new scholarships to be awarded this year.
Recipients were chosen from among more than 1,000 applicants by the Idaho Governor’s Cup Scholarship Fund Inc.’s 16-member board of directors. Selections were made based on each applicant’s commitment to public service, academic achievement, leadership and community involvement.

This year’s awards include the first recipient of the new Cecil D. Andrus Excellence in Education Scholarship. It will be awarded annually to a student who intends to major in education and pursue a career in teaching.
Among those awarded include the following locals:
Academic Scholarships – four-year programs: Godavari Murphy, Kooskia – Kamiah High School – Attending Boise State University
