College of Business Supporters

Thank you for your support of the Idaho State University College of Business. As a first generation college student myself, I saw first-hand the positive impact that the scholarships you provide have on a students ability to succeed and graduate. A week never goes by when I do not hear a story about how your gifts are having an extraordinarily positive impact on the lives of our students. Your support is also critical in providing the technological resources our students need to succeed in the classroom and online and funding endowed chairs and professorships so that we can always recruit and retain the best faculty for our courses.  Every part of the Idaho State University College of Business is better because of your help and all of us are forever thankful for the opportunities your donations provide. Thank you for everything you do and Go Bengals!

- Dr. Shane Hunt, Dean


As an Idaho State University alumna, Catherine Rider experienced the life-changing impact of philanthropy first-hand. It was due to the generosity of others that Catherine was able to fulfill her lifelong dream of earning a college degree through a generous academic scholarship award. In her current role with the College of Business, Catherine works to help fulfill the philanthropic wishes of College of Business graduates and friends who want to show their support of the College and its students. If you would like to learn more about how you can invest in the future of Idaho State University, please fill out this form to request more information about giving, or contact Catherine directly with the information below.

Thank you for helping the next generation of Bengals find their ROAR!
