Thanks to the generosity of alumni, parents, friends, foundations and other donors At the college of idaho, there are 138 endowed scholarships that are named. As endowed scholarship resources continue to grow through the strength of our endowment performance, these thoughtful gifts have become lasting memorials to individuals in the C of I community.
It is because of this traditional support that the College is able to award financial aid to motivated, high-achieving students. The income we receive each year from these endowed funds, coupled with outright major and Boone Fund gifts, allows us to grow as a leading liberal arts college. We are deeply grateful to those who have endowed scholarships at the College, and to those who are considering becoming a part of this remarkable legacy.
Scholarships appear in a student’s Financial Award Letter and are based on multiple criteria and academic credentials. These scholarships are awarded internally and NOT available for specific application. If one of these scholarships is awarded to you, you may be notified of a specific donor’s name and then asked to write a thank you letter to the donor. We believe the expression of gratitude to our donors is a vital component of the scholarship program.
For more information on creating an endowed scholarship please contact Jack Cafferty in the Development Office.
