Intercollegiate Knights Endowed Scholarship

A Need Realized

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 Impact Scholars Program.

Rewriting Statistics

Meet Scholarship Recipient Tia Sutton

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 Endowed Scholarship and make a difference in lives of these students. Education is the number one variable that can break the cycle of poverty.

Meet Scholarship Recipient Ivy Smith

Ivy entered the Idaho foster care system when she was 13. She lived in foster homes and a group home before coming to Boise State as a freshman. Defying the odds, she graduated in May with a double major in environmental studies and political science. This fall, she began the master’s program in public administration at Boise State
