Intercollegiate Knights Endowed Scholarship

Idaho statistics reveal that 80% of foster care youth want to attend college, however, only 7% are able to enroll and only 3% graduate. The Boise State Impact Scholars Program is re-writing these statistics. Boise State alumni and friends may contribute to the Intercollegiate Knights (IK) Endowed Scholarship and make a difference in lives of these students. Education is the number one variable that can break the cycle of poverty.

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.
