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