When the Tyee Club grows, the promise and capability of our student-athletes grow. Husky Athletics relies on Tyee Club member support to provide funding for scholarships, which allow our student-athletes to continue thriving as members of the Husky academic and athletic community. The cost of funding annual UW athletic scholarships has risen to over $9 million. Keeping pace with the increasing scholarship support needed is critical to remaining competitive on a national level.
