Mayor’s Scholarship

 

Former Idaho Falls mayor, Jared Fuhriman, started the Mayor’s Scholarship Fund in 2006 stating, “It takes an entire community to keep the light of success and achievement burning. Idaho Falls is one such place, and I am both privileged and honored to live here with you.”

The support offered through our scholarships is more than simply financial aid. As past recipient Kayla says, “The Mayor’s Scholarship Fund helped me tremendously. It encouraged me with the idea that there are people in my home community supporting my studies. I couldn’t be more thankful to have received the award.” Another recipient, LaKesha, tells us, “The night of the awards event was great. It was awesome to be able to meet the donors, talk to them and personally thank them.”

 

Why Mayor’s Scholarship?

The Mayor’s Scholarship Fund has been awarding scholarships to local students in grades 8-12 for over a decade. Former Mayor Jared Fuhriman said, “It takes an entire community to keep the light of success and achievement burning.”  Why have a citywide scholarship program? An educated workforce is good for our community, our city and our state. It takes an extraordinarily visionary community to support students through these scholarships and inspire meaningful change in the lives of Eastern Idaho’s young people. The continued endorsement of individuals, businesses and corporations is vital to our efforts for providing financial assistance to deserving students.
