    One last note: After we make offers next April, students can log on to the scholarship site to check their status. Starting in late April, students should be watching for emails (even in junk/spam and other folders) and logging on to the scholarship site to check their status. Students should mark scholarshiphelp@osbe.idaho.gov as a safe sender in their email program and not use a high school email account.
