Invest in Students
“Students in [the Barker Capital Management and Trading] program not only gain excellent hands-on experience that helps them as they navigate their future careers, but they also learn valuable skills that can be applied daily to their personal financial lives.”
—Rick Murray, U.S. Bank Region President for the North Idaho Palouse
The University of Idaho is where students come to succeed and learn to lead. We have a proud tradition of graduating leaders, who take seriously their role as global citizens to help address our nation’s most challenging issues. We attract students from across the nation and world and the U of I enrolls more national merit scholars than all other institutions in the state combined. Today’s U of I students are tomorrow’s workforce—the keystone for business innovation and economic growth. In addition to the ways listed here, we can help you invest in the success of U of I students through internships and scholarships.

Business Process Center projects, capstone projects, engineering senior design projects, and case study projects offer real-world implications, enrich learning and challenge students to deliver their best academic performance.
