Dean of Students
On the front lines of this crisis

Right now, our students are working to overcome their own unique challenges to this crisis. At the Dean of Students office, we are working day and night to help.

 

Here is how you can make a difference:

 

University of Idaho General Scholarship Fund

Gifts to the U of I General Scholarship Fund allow students with financial need equal opportunities for learning and success.  These funds go directly into the hands of students who need them the most during this difficult and uncertain time.

 

Bruce and Kathy Pitman Fund for Student Emergencies

After the new realities of COVID-19, Bruce and Kathy Pitman asked that gifts to this fund be directed to the students who have the most urgent need. Your gift to The Bruce and Kathy Pitman Fund for Student Emergencies allows us to direct your support to our students' most critical needs.

 

The Vandal Food Pantry

The Vandal Food Pantry is a free resource and open to all. There are no eligibility requirements to use this resource. The Vandal Food Pantry is stocked regularly with grocery bags full of food and various hygiene items. Those in need get what they need, no questions asked.

 

The Katy Benoit Safety Fund

When you donate to the Katy Benoit Safety Fund, you are supporting an ongoing commitment to the safety and well-being of our students, both educationally and concretely. Donations will support the annual Katy Benoit Safety Forum, allowing access to a broader range of educational speakers and opportunities. These funds may also be used to assist students navigating the myriad impacts of intimate partner violence on their lives. Success for our students is measured many ways, and a college experience free of abuse is one of them.

 

 

Please make a gift today to help. Each gift changes a life.
