Dean’s Excellence Fund
Your gift to the Dean’s Excellence Fund helps us provide a range of opportunities to COBE students. The COBE dean uses this fund to grant scholarships and stipends to students going through personal or financial hardship so they can stay in school. Gifts to this fund make it possible for students to travel across the country and abroad to share their research, learn from experts, and conduct meaningful service and trade missions.
Your donations to the Dean’s Excellence Fund allow us to be flexible so that we can support special opportunities to help students in need and enhance learning experiences beyond the classroom.
COBE Current Use Scholarship Fund
Gifts to this fund provide immediate support for students within the College of Business and Economics. Current use scholarships benefit undergraduate and graduate students in all of COBE’s degree programs.
Your donations to the COBE Current Use Scholarship Fund provide much-needed financial support to many outstanding business students who would not be able to attend college without the help of scholarships.
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program
VITA connects COBE students and faculty, certified by the IRS, with members of the community who fall within the program’s income requirements and need free assistance preparing their tax returns. Our students' complete returns for low-income Idahoans including our refugee population and even fellow Boise State students. Through this service to the community, Boise State students gain real-life experience working with clients and applying tax law.
Your donations to this program help to pay for VITA certification classes, laptop computers, travel expenses to bring VITA to rural sites and interpreters. We urgently need all of these things in order to help our neighbors in need.
