About our Scholarship Program
The annual CusterTel Educational Scholarship Program awards eight students every year. Each student will receive a $1,000 scholarship to assist in furthering his/her education at a college, university or trade school. Four recipients are chosen to represent Challis High School and four more recipients are chosen to represent Salmon High School. Not only are these recipients hard working, they are outstanding community members. Read more about our recipients and scholarship program below.
