Earlier this week, we released this article about a Boise State Student who is helping crowdfund a scholarship for women in STEM, medicine, and law at Boise State in response to a very controversial and anti-feminist speech by a Boise State Professor.

If you haven't seen it yet, you can here.

And read more about the speech here.

Within 24 hours of the original e-mail that Boise State Marketing student Ally Orr had sent out to professors and staff (to raise the initial funds for the scholarship) her Go Fund Me page hit over $10,000.

Since then, the Go Fund Me has climbed exponentially with an overwhelming amount of support from the Boise community. Since we spoke with Ally (only a few days ago) the scholarship fund was around $37,000.

Now, the scholarship fund sits at over $45,000!

This scholarship for women in STEM, Medicine, and Law at Boise State has a goal of $50,000 in which 4% of the scholarship will be awarded each year by the University to a deserving woman in the pursuant of one of these similar careers.

Here is what a few donors to the scholarship had to say:
