Intercollegiate Knights

Who are the Intercollegiate Knights?

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

Alumni Association

Since 1967 the Boise State Alumni Association has given alumni around the world opportunities to meet each other, maintain valuable relationships, celebrate what it means to be a Bronco and give back to the university, students and community. We promote the university number one philanthropic priority by supporting student scholarships
