The mission of the CSI Honors Advisory Committee is to support the Honors Program Director in achieving the goals of the Honors Program. Representatives from multiple disciplines provide input on policies, assist the Director in securing resources and promote the Honors Program mission throughout campus.
The College Of Southern Idaho Honors Program serves the needs of highly motivated and academically accomplished students by providing a student-centered learning environment that strives to develop a student’s critical, social, and cultural awareness. The Honors Program underscores the College of Southern Idaho’s commitment to quality and excellence in matters of knowledge, creativity and leadership.
First and foremost, the foundation scholarship has substantially reduced the financial burden on my parents. As we are going through difficult financial times as a result of the economy, and because the cost of college is expensive, even at CSI, every donation to my college education helps tremendously. Therefore, this scholarship has played a huge part in allowing me to go through my first year of college debt free.
My name is Aaron Dobbs, and I would like to just briefly summarize what opportunities the scholarships that I have received from the Foundation have allowed me access to. Because of my awards, I am now able to attend CSI with the goal of achieving my Associates degree with virtually no debt. This will help facilitate my success here at CSI, and undoubtedly contribute to my success elsewhere, be it a 4-year university or the workplace. My plans for additional education include the attendance of a university, although I am unsure which one at this point.
I was a junior in high school when I took a field trip to the CSI campus and fell in love with it. It was at that moment that I decided I wanted to attend the College of Southern Idaho. I started to research CSI and found that tuition would be more expensive that I anticipated. As an out of state resident, the Foundation Scholarships that I received made the difference in my ability to become a CSI student. These scholarships allowed me to attend the school that I desired to go to, rather than attending the community college located in my hometown.
