ALUMNI LEGACY SCHOLARSHIP/STIPEND PROGRAM
The Alumni Legacy Scholarship, open to relatives of Boise State alumni, lets students focus on their studies by paying an amount equal to in-state fees for four years. So far, the scholarship fund has generated $1.25 million — and counting.
Student IMPACT Board
The Student IMPACT Board, Boise State’s premier advancement organization, is where students learn about leadership development, the inner-workings of Boise State, fundraising and professional networking.
Intercollegiate Knights Endowed Scholarship
While the current Alumni Legacy Scholarship endowment has grown to support 24 students, the needs of students with foster care experience are different. Without the consistency of a home and school, students often change schools many times, which can lead to lower GPA’s than many of our scholarships require. In addition, while they may qualify for financial aid for tuition, they may need housing and meal support especially during the summer or holiday breaks. Students can experience more stability in college than most other settings upon entering adulthood.
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 these students feel part of our Boise State family. Thus the Intercollegiate Knights Chapter took a leadership role by starting this scholarship.
