Student from American Falls Awarded First JRM Foundation for Humanity Annual Scholarship

October 3, 2022

Idaho State University student Martha Ramirez was awarded the first JRM Foundation for Humanity Annual Scholarship. 

This scholarship is awarded to a full time student with interests in law or a major or minor in Political Science. The student must have a minimum 3.00 cumulative GPA and preference is given to first generation students.

Ramirez, from American Falls, is a junior working on a political science major with a sociology minor. She says that her parents, recognizing the value of higher education, have encouraged her to go to college. Her goal is to attend law school.  

“I have an aunt in Mexico who is a lawyer and that has always interested me,” she says.

The scholarship award was established through the generosity of the JRM Foundation and the Rahim family. Beena Mannan and Amna Mannan are both graduates of the ISU Department of Political Science. Beena earned both an undergraduate degree and MPA from Political Science and Amna earned a MPA.

Chair of the political science department, professor Mark McBeth, says that “faculty overwhelmingly supported Martha’s academic aspirations and were proud to award the first JRM Foundation for Humanity Annual Scholarship to her.”
