Intercollegiate Knights Endowed Scholarship

The Intercollegiate Knights (alumni from the former service fraternity dedicated to creating lasting legacies at Boise State) realized that the alumni association can provide mentor programs and resources to help students with foster care experience — who face little control over their circumstances — feel part of our Boise State family. Thus they took a leadership role by starting the Intercollegiate Knights Endowed Scholarship supporting students in the Boise State Student Impact Scholars Program.

Celebrating Family Tradition

Alumni Legacy Scholarship

The Alumni Legacy Scholarship, open to relatives of Boise State alumni, lets students focus on their studies by paying an amount equal to in-state fees for four years. So far, the scholarship fund has generated $1.25 million — and counting.

Bronco Family Scholarship

For Allie (’11 and ’20) and Geo (’09), it has been something special to be part of the Bronco family. As proud and engaged alumni, they wanted to help passionate students become Broncos for life!

That is why they started the Bronco Family scholarship to help students who are passionate about attending Boise State who may not qualify for other types of scholarships or aid. Scholarships or aid often determine where a student chooses to attend college and they wanted to be able to help a student decide on Boise State.
