Financial Support

Are you new to CSI? Has it been longer than a semester since you've returned? We are here to help and offer financial support.  CSI is the best bargain in Idaho for a quality education at a relatively low cost. To help students reduce this cost even further, the college awards over $2,000,000 in scholarships annually. These awards recognize students' achievement in academic, technical, art, music, drama, athletic, and leadership skills.

The CSI Scholarship Application is used for awarding over 300 CSI Foundation scholarships, including the New Hope. One application covers both fall and spring semesters of the academic year.

If you have any questions about financial support please contact Aaliayah Garcia at

Social Support

Beginning with an intensive eight-week summer program or a fall start all the way through certification/degree completion, Bridge to Success is designed to develop academic and 21st Century skills that are essential in the classroom and in the workplace, promote community-engaged learning, identify valuable resources to increase student success, and foster social and academic relationships with peers, faculty, and staff.

Support for Military and Veterans

Military and Veterans Services can help you make the transition from the military to college life and use any military educational benefits you’re eligible for while attending CSI.

Childcare Support

The Early Childhood Education Learning Center is designed to meet the developmental needs of young children six months through five years of age. The program provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development.

Program services are provided for children of students, faculty, and staff. Child care supportive services funding is available for low-income and middle-income families, through the Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP). 

You can find available childcare scholarships on the CSI Financial Aid site.
