The Staff Council scholarships for dependent children of classified and non-classified employees are funded by employee donations. Currently we are seeking donations for the non-classified scholarship (goal of $10,000) so that both scholarships can be fully funded. You can donate either by following the payroll deduction link at the bottom of the screen or by sending a check to the ISU Foundation. Please make sure it is clear on the form which scholarship you will be donating to!

The net income from the Fund shall be used to provide one or more annual awards to students who are dependent children of current Idaho State University classified or non-classified employees (equal awards for each classification). Recipients must be enrolled as full–time students or full–time incoming freshmen and have a minimum GPA of 2.5. Each applicant must submit a written statement addressing educational and career goals. Preference shall be given to applicants with demonstrated financial need. Awards shall be distributed for the academic fall semester.

The Director of Scholarships shall appoint a small selection committee to determine the recipient, amount, and timing of the award. The President of the Staff Council, or designee, shall serve on the selection committee.

The Scholarship Committeeis an internal committee that judges child scholarships, keeps the committee informed of amount of scholarship and works with the foundation to earn money for the scholarship.
