Join the College of Arts and Letters in raising the roar!
Join the College of Arts and Letters in raising the roar during Idaho State University's I Love ISU Campaign! This year, the College's main giving priorities include the Humanities Endowment, the Road Scholars Scholarship Endowment, and the Dean’s Excellence Fund.
- Humanities Endowment: This endowment provides support for events, programs, research, and initiatives in the humanities and benefits both our students and our community. Last year, the College of Arts and Letters held over 80 events that fell within the humanities. A few of these events included: public political debates, the Elizabeth Smart speaker event, visiting writers series, Teaching Literature Book Award, election night watch, Philosophy for the Public, Humanities Café, a community theatre, choral festivals, jazz band, percussion ensemble, and dance concerts. (To support this endowment, please click on the Humanities Endowment tab on the right side of the page.)
- Road Scholar Scholarship Endowment: This endowment was created to award scholarships to graduating high school students. The recipients of these scholarships are nominated by their high schools on a need and performance basis. Once a recipient is chosen, the scholarship is presented in a classroom setting or at a school assembly. It is a true celebration! Because of this scholarship, more and more high school students are choosing to “go-on” to college. (To support this endowment, please click on the Road Scholar Scholarship Endowment tab on the right side. Each donation made will be matched up to $29,000.)
- College of Arts and Letters Dean's Excellence Fund: This fund plays a vital role for the college by allowing the Dean, Dr. Kandi Turley-Ames, to prioritize College needs and use the funds to carry them out. Last year, most of the donations to this fund were used for student scholarships and played an important part in a bigger strategic plan focused on recruitment and retention.
