President's True Blue Scholarship
Since 2016, the President’s True Blue Endowed Scholarship has helped Idahoans have a college experience. Based primarily on financial need and merit, these current-use funds are awarded to Idaho residents for four years. Supporting the True Blue Endowed Scholarship will help us impact more Idahoans from around the state, raise the Gem State’s “go-on” rates, and expand the number of college graduates in our economy. Our mission as a public university is to serve the people and the State of Idaho, and this scholarship will help ensure for generations to come that our potential is realized.
Dorothy Strickland Scholarship for Intensive English
The mission of the Intensive English Program at Boise State University is to provide non-native English-speaking students with the opportunity to improve their English language skills for personal, professional, and/or academic success.
Sadly, many of the students most in need of improving their English language skills don’t have access to the resources needed to pursue our program and continue on to full-time enrollment at Boise State University.
This fall, with the help of professor Dr. Michael Strickland, we established to Dorothy Strickland Scholarship for English Language Learners to help fill this gap and provide more opportunities to our students. This scholarship was established with the help of Dr. Michael Strickland in order to honor his mother’s legacy of tireless work in support of English Language Education and particularly those students most in need. In addition to being a loving mother and grandmother, Dr. Dorothy Strickland was a noted author and educator who held the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Chair in Education at Rutgers University.
Sandra Eggers Study Abroad Scholarship
Every year, Boise State students pack their bags and travel to foreign colleges and universities. Studying abroad is one of the most enriching experiences they can have during their education, but not everyone gets to have that chance. For many, the financial hurdles to being in another culture, speaking another language, or even just pursuing their academic careers in a fresh environment can be prohibitive. With help from the Sandra Eggers Study Abroad Scholarship, we’re able to give more students the opportunity to see the world.
Order of Omega Honor Society Scholarship
Founded in 1959, the Order of Omega is an honor society for fraternity and sorority life members that recognizes leadership, inspires attainment, unites organizations, and creates an open intellectual atmosphere among members of the Greek systems on more than 575 college campuses in North America. With a renewed Order of Omega charter, Boise State University is already seeing the benefits of its association with the order, but the organization's missions to lead, collaborate, and drive the campus culture need your help. Supporting Boise State's Order of Omega chapter will advance its mission of excellence and energize the fraternity and sorority system at the university.
Broncos Supporting Broncos Scholarship
A collaboration between current students and alumni, Broncos Supporting Broncos is a grassroots way to help talented students participate in Boise State’s prestigious Honors College, regardless of their financial situation.
College of Business Scholarship
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.
Student Teacher Scholarships
Boise State University has one of the finest schools for teachers around. But becoming a great teacher means a lot more than studying it in a classroom, and real-world, supervised teaching experience is a prerequisite for getting a job that confers invaluable wisdom and skills. Undertaking the student-teaching experience is expensive for would-be educators: They must take time off their non-teaching jobs and fund themselves as they go through the process. To make that easier, we established the Student-Teacher Scholarship program, which helps these Broncos financially as they spend time in K-12 classrooms. Giving to this program will make the student-teacher experience less daunting and stressful to more of our deserving education students.
Alumni Legacy Scholarship
In the last few decades, Boise State University has grown tremendously. Today, it’s the largest public institution of higher education in the State of Idaho and is counted as one of America’s most innovative universities. None of that would be possible without generations of Broncos showing their excellence in and beyond the classroom — and the education keeps better. That’s why we established the Alumni Legacy Scholarship, a four-year renewable scholarship for incoming first-year students who are relatives of Boise State alumni and members of the Boise State Alumni Association. Your support helps us show our alumni that our support doesn’t end when they pick up their diplomas and that a Boise State education is both the finest to be had in Idaho and well within reach of their family.
Bronco Family Scholarship
This happens all too often: Students apply for financial aid, and while they and their families may not qualify for many need-based scholarships and other forms of financial aid, they don’t have the resources to foot the tuition bill for a Boise State education themselves. The financial aid donut hole is real, so we established the Bronco Family Scholarship. It’s for students eager to attend Boise State but for whom this financial aid gap makes that difficult. Giving to the Bronco Family Scholarship will help more students planning to enroll full-time at Boise State and can demonstrate financial need a chance to join the Bronco Family.
Intercollegiate Knights Scholarship
“The Family You Choose” is more than a tagline at Boise State University: It’s an ethic. That’s why the Intercollegiate Knights — alumni of the former service fraternity that created so many lasting legacies on and off-campus — established the Intercollegiate Knights Scholarship for students coming to the university from foster care backgrounds. This endowed scholarship is the basis of the Impact Scholars Program, which provides scholarships, mentorship, and other resources to students hailing from the foster system, and every gift helps make this critical tool available to more people.
