“I am responsible for supporting myself… Without support in the form of a scholarship, I would not be where I am today. Thank you.” — Jacob Grinwis, a junior in marketing from Belgrade, Montana.

COBE Career Services Fund and Dean’s Excellence Fund

These funds make special programming possible. Give the gift of experience. Whether it is a mock-interview event hosted by COBE Career Services, trips to conferences and competitions or the chance to hear inspirational speakers, learning by experiencing is rewarding, memorable and fulfilling.

Faculty Support

Excellent faculty are the lifeblood of our college. A great professor can change the life of a student in ways few others can. COBE professorships and endowed chairs help us recognize outstanding faculty, establish student and community-centered programming and lead the college into the next generation of excellence.

A Family Legacy to Support Future Leaders

The family of the late Idaho business icon Robert V. Hansberger has honored him by creating the Robert V. Hansberger Endowed Chair within the Boise State University College of Business and Economics.

“I am thrilled that the Hansberger family has made a gift which honors an outstanding man, keeping his memory alive for generations to come, and which will benefit students through the dedicated teaching of business ethics,”  said COBE Dean Mark Bannister.
