Chapter Scholarship

William & Doris Brydon (ISU Phi Kappa Phi) Scholarship, Spring Semester 2024

Our tradition of offering an ISU undergraduate scholarship continues! We are pleased to announce The William & Doris Brydon (ISU Phi Kappa Phi) Scholarship, Spring Semester 2024. One undergraduate member of our ISU chapter will be selected to receive this scholarship. The deadline to apply for this scholarship is September 1, 2023.

This year’s scholarship is named for a couple whose efforts to build the community have been diverse and far-reaching. Both of them graduated from Idaho State College (now ISU) before completing graduate work. Since returning to Pocatello in 1962 with degrees in medicine and physical therapy, they have been generous supporters of people, programs, and building projects at ISU and in the larger community. Most significantly, they made major contributions to the Stephens Performing Arts Center, where the mezzanine is named for them, and recently helped fund construction of the Bengal Welcome Center.

Bill graduated from Idaho State as valedictorian in 1952 (before PKP had a chapter on campus) but was later inducted into our chapter in 2004 as an outstanding community member, who shared our motto: "Let the love of learning rule humanity." Before his death in 2020, he was active in the Pocatello Rotary, Idaho State Civic Symphony, the Sagebrush Society, and sang with the Camerata Singers. He helped establish the WAMI Regional Medical Education Program.

In addition to her work as a physical therapist, Doris went on to receive an additional degree in business finance from ISU in 1985. She and Bill opened the Pocatello Allergy and Asthma Clinic in 1985, where she managed the offices of the practice. Her background in zoology led to the couple’s ongoing support of the Pocatello Zoo, and the Idaho Museum of Natural History.
