College of Eastern Idaho (CEI) is moving into its second year as your community college with increased student enrollment, a variety of general education offerings, and new technical degree opportunities. Start here, stay close and save big! At CEI we offer a place for students to start their educational journey, while staying close to home and saving big dollars. Our focus at CEI is to remain student-centered and to help our students connect with resources for a successful outcome of a certificate, degree, or transfer to continue on their educational journey.

CEI Foundation exists to serve our students by providing scholarship opportunities through your support. Your gift is extremely important because it offers immediate resources directed to current scholarship needs and opportunities to remove financial barriers many CEI students encounter. Your support of CEI students contributes to their successful collegiate experience and leads students to graduation.

The Foundation Board of Directors thank you for your generous partnership and continued support. If you desire, you may specify your gift to a particular designation such as our annual fund for scholarships, to support a program specific scholarship, or to our endowment fund – wherever you choose. Please consider the gift of education today. Your donation is helping to provide opportunities for an educated workforce. We would love to partner with you to change a life through scholarship. Call us today (208) 535-5398 or e-mail for more information.
