With Scholarships, Ally Almaraz Combines Nanomaterials, High Tech Manufacturing and Outer Space

Meet Scholarship Recipient Ally Almaraz

Almaraz is an Idahoan born in Nampa, but her drive, intelligence and Boise State education are helping her take the next step. She expects to graduate in the spring of 2024 with a bachelor’s degree in engineering, but in the summer of 2022, she interned in NASA’s ISGC internship program — a stepping stone on the way to a graduate degree, additional research and eventually, she said, a career in the private sector.

Another dream for Scott Matlock in the NFL

In the weeks leading up to April’s NFL Draft, Scott Matlock took nothing for granted. When he visited NFL teams, the former Boise State defensive lineman still was excited by the fact he would get picked up at the airport by someone holding a sign with his name. He took photos each step of the way, seeing cities he never imagined himself in. On April 29, a dream that seemed far-fetched not too long ago came true — Matlock was drafted in the sixth round, the 200th overall pick, by the Los Angeles Chargers.

How Endowing Faculty Positions Boosts Boise State

Boise State has aspirations — for its students, faculty and the communities it serves. That’s why it prioritizes private support of endowed faculty.

Endowments are investments that yield extra income for instructors and scholars, usually named after donors or their loved ones. They supplement salaries, fund research projects, equip laboratories, pay for travel and other expenses, and hire graduate students.

From humble beginnings, a community came together to create a place where women… and men… could pursue education and build a better life… For themselves. For their community. For Idaho. From the very beginning, inspired by the landscape and the freedom it represented, they called themselves… Broncos. What they built would become a catalyst for community… For audacious ideas and Relentless Innovation… A Powerhouse University.

*crowd chanting: Boise! State!*

Where challenges lead to trailblazing breakthroughs, and humble confidence inspires curiosity. Exploring every detail down to Quantum DNA, our passion ignites our pursuits and our people become rocket fuel for reaching the stars. And when faced with adversity, we draw up a Blueprint for success. Because our blue collar work ethic turns impossible dreams into triumphs that shock the world. (announcer) and it’s a fake play (announcer) they’re going to score (announcer) and the Broncos have won the Fiesta Bowl! (announcer) Can you believe it!?

*horses galloping*

Boise State was built on the backs of Broncos and their unbridled spirit, who made Idaho their stomping ground, and put Boise on the map. But that was then, and this is… what’s next. Empowering the next generation of Broncos by removing obstacles to success. We are pushing the boundaries of research discoveries, forging a path of progress and relentless innovation. Competing at the highest level, on The Blue and beyond. Why do we do this? Because we are Broncos, and nothing will hold us back. We are Proud. We are Loyal. And we are charging into a future of our own making, together. *music swells*
