The I Love ISU Scholarship Campaign has a rich history in Southeast Idaho. Originating in 1982, by business leaders with the goal of keeping Idaho's best students in Bannock County, this campaign continues to support Bengal students throughout Idaho with scholarship dollars.
The pioneers of the I Love ISU campaign, the Pocatello-Chubbuck Chamber of Commerce, understood the economic impact of an educated workforce and what it means to keep our local students in this great state. As a result, the campaign has grown into the most recognizable fundraising effort at Idaho State. I Love ISU now extends beyond the ISU flagship campus in Pocatello and throughout Bengal nation with fundraising efforts in Blackfoot, Idaho Falls, and Meridian.
This year, the I Love ISU volunteers will raise more than $225,000 in gifts and pledges for students with the help of local community members like you. ISU hosts teams of business leaders, community members and ISU employees to make fundraising calls to Southeast Idaho residents on Sept. 7 in Idaho Falls and Sept. 12-15 in Pocatello.
During the campaign, donors can also direct gifts to other areas of the university including colleges, departments, and student programs.
