College of Law Scholarship Fund
The College of Law Scholarship Fund helps Idaho Law attract the best and most promising applicants and ensures that deserving students can pursue an Idaho legal education.

College of Law – Student Emergency Fund (College of Law Class of 1964 Fund)
The College of Law Student Emergency Fund was established by the College of Law Class of 1964 in recognition of their classmates and the education they received at the Univeristy of Idaho College of Law. The fund is used to assist students who are facing temporary financial hardships which result from an emergency or crisis situation (e.g., accident, illness, travel emergencies, death of a family member, natural disasters). This flexible-use fund allows the dean and the associate dean for students to assist students who are in a crisis situation and need immediate temporary financial assistance.
Your gift to the College of Law Student Emergency Fund will help a student in need of emergency funding and allow them to continue with their legal education.
