The J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation announced a $20 million plan this week to bolster college going and success in its home state of Idaho. Foundation officials plan to distribute $11 million -- in $1 million increments to 11 colleges in the state -- for scholarships, $6 million to the Idaho Education Network to increase access to relevant data, and $3 million to bolster the state's piece of the national KnowHow2Go campaign, that helps inform students about their postsecondary possibilities.
