Showing up for Students
Our students work hard even when faced with unique challenges - whether those that 2020 will forever be known for or day-to-day difficulties that can make or break a student's shot at earning an education. 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.
Bruce and Kathy Pitman Fund for Student Emergencies
Gifts to The Bruce and Kathy Pitman Fund for Student Emergencies allow us to direct your support to our students' most critical needs. During 2020, this fund supported numerous students by providing access to WIFI, assisted with utilities, and even provided travel funds for students to return home when the realities of COVID-19 struck. Even in a world without COVID-19, our students face financial challenges that make continuing their education incredibly difficult, sometimes impossible. Please consider making a gift to The Bruce and Kathy Pitman Fund for Student Emergencies today.
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.
Each gift changes a life. Please make one today.
