About the Scholarship Fund

The objective is simple: to help deserving Idaho students from predominantly underserved rural areas receive a college education.

The IAHD is fully aware that not all families can send their children to an accredited college. We also understand that our rural community populations are shrinking while our urban areas continue to see explosive growth. The effect of these competing forces is bourn out as we witness our highway districts struggle for resources, a sufficient labor pool, and a tax base large enough to meet the demands put on our infrastructure. By taking an active role in creating educational opportunities for more children, the IAHD Scholarship Fund strives to have a meaningful impact on the forces working against our rural communities

Raising Funds

The IAHD Scholarship Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization led by a volunteer board of directors and officers. All monies collected from fundraising activities and corporate sponsorships goes directly to the scholarship fund to help award more students with scholarships! 

With the high number of 2019 - 2020 IAHD Scholarship applications received, it is evident that we need to raise more money to ultimately award more scholarships for the 2020 - 2021 academic year. 

Thanks to all of you- in 2018 the IAHD Scholarship Fund was able to raise over $28,000!! That is a huge feat considering it was the inaugural year of the fundraiser. However, this year we are confident we can work well as a team and crush last year by raising $30,000!

Are you ready to help more students pay for their higher education?
