About the CSI Foundation

Awarding Southern Idaho Scholarship Funds


The College of Southern Idaho Foundation was founded in 1984 with one purpose: to provide scholarship and program support for the students at the College of Southern Idaho. Since that time the CSI Foundation has grown to become one of the nation's top 30 community college foundations.

Since inception, the Foundation has awarded $20,592,909 in scholarships and an additional $16,903,220 in program and project support to CSI. This is due to generous community donors and fiscally responsible management.


Statement of Need

As stated above the CSI Foundation wants to make sure that every student has access to scholarship funds. Our goal over the next few years is to increase awarding from 43% of the CSI Student population (excluding Dual Credit enrollment) to 50% or more.

Mission Statement

The College of Southern Idaho Foundation provides increased awareness and financial support to CSI to educate, offer lifelong learning, and strengthen community partnerships.
