Agricultural and Life Sciences

The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) is leading the way in finding solutions to the world’s most critical challenges. Every day, faculty, staff and students in CALS provide real-life solutions that advance the health and welfare of people, animals and the environment. In light of our students adapting to the global pandemic of COVID-19, we are raising money for student support and scholarships. We are committed to helping our students breakthrough these challenging circumstances.

 

College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Excellence Fund

Your gift to the CALS Excellence Fund impacts students across the college. From scholarship support to extracurricular opportunities, the CALS Excellence Fund enhances the student experience and addresses our most immediate needs.

 

College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Scholarship Fund

A gift to the CALS Scholarship Fund provides scholarship support to CALS students. These scholarships make coming to University of Idaho an easy decision for students wanting to receive a premier education in agricultural and life sciences.

 

Judi Byram Memorial Fund for Student Emergencies

This fund, in memory of the wife of dedicated alumnus Dennie Byram, provides emergency funds to students for a variety of extenuating circumstances. Now more than ever, these flexible funds are crucial in case a student needs extra support to continue their studies.

 

Wilma Talley Thomas 4-H Leadership Scholarship

This scholarship was created to recognize Wilma Talley Thomas and provide scholarships for students with 4-H leadership experience. 4-H was a continuous thread for Wilma Talley Thomas and we are excited to provide a U of I scholarship to well deserving 4-H youth in her memory.
