Crapo, President Daley-Laursen, ICF make announcement in Moscow

Moscow - Calling it a positive sign of Idaho's commitment to global competitiveness, Idaho Senator Mike Crapo will announce the first recipient of the Mike Crapo Math and Science Scholarship Fund on Wednesday on the University of Idaho campus in Moscow. Crapo will be joined by University of Idaho President Steven Daley-Laursen, Hilarie Engle of the Idaho Community Foundation (ICF), and the student and her family for the announcement.

Crapo announced the scholarship effort in 2004 as a way to encourage Idaho's best students to seek math, science and other technical education at Idaho's universities. Since that announcement, it has been collecting contributions to create the fund. The Idaho Community Foundation, under Director Cathy Silak, administers the scholarship fund, which was started with Crapo's honoraria donations and since grown through many contributors through the ICF.
