Jim Curtis and Richard Cordero, representatives from the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter 2 in Boise, met with College of Western Idaho (CWI) Foundation Board President, Ivan Castillo, in January to present the Foundation with a $1,600 donation for student scholarships.

The DAV Chapter 2 Boise scholarship fund, created for CWI students who are American veterans or are an immediate family member of an American veteran, awards a $1,000 scholarship to one student each academic year. While the fund was established in 2018 by Chapter 2, all Idaho chapters can contribute.

“DAV Chapter 2 donates to CWI in order to give disabled veterans and their dependents an opportunity to start or continue their education and help them achieve their goals,” said Commander Curtis.

The CWI Foundation scholarships application period is now open for the 2021-2022 academic year. Students interested in applying for scholarships must have the CWI admission application completed, be accepted, and have myCWI login information. The application closes March 31, 2021.
