Vandal Giving Day 2022 Launches April 5 at 10:00 a.m.!

The mission of the Vandal Boosters, Inc., through its membership program known as the Vandal Scholarship Fund, is to fund all of the student-athlete scholarships awarded by the Department of Athletics at the University of Idaho.

Thank you for your generosity to Idaho Athletics and our 300-plus student-athletes.

Your philanthropic investment ensures our student-athletes are able to compete at the highest level while working towards their degrees from a world-class institution. Vandal student-athletes are excelling in the classroom, in the community and in competition.
