The College of Eastern Idaho Foundation Board of Directors represents a diverse group of individuals who dedicate their time and resources in service to the Foundation for the benefit ofCollege of Eastern Idaho. This group of volunteers invests in changing the lives of people attending the college. The impact of the investment made by this collective group is tremendous. When we think of our personal investments we often think of stocks, bonds, interest and dividends. Investing in the CEI Foundation scholarship program is a unique investment. It is an investment in people, in partnerships and in our local community.

The scholarships received by students represent the investments of hundreds of local individuals, businesses and organizations. These scholarships represent investments in people. The dividends of the scholarship program are significant. The investment’s return may be a better career with better pay, a better life for a family raising children, or a dream fulfilled. The value of education has dividends for a lifetime. Thank you to all of our contributors and congratulations to our CEI students.
