The University of Washington Intercollegiate Athletics Program supports more than 650 student-athletes who proudly wear the purple and the gold. These young men and women represent the UW both in the classroom and in their arenas of competition.
For our student-athletes, scholarship assistance is key to their overall success as Huskies. The Athletic Department currently funds the maximum scholarships allowed by the NCAA. Tyee contributions have long provided scholarship funds for all of our 21 sports programs. However, the cost of tuition continues to rise dramatically. Keeping pace with the increasing scholarship cost is critical to remaining competitive on a national level.
Your contribution either to the Husky Scholarship Fund or through endowment can help provide a student-athlete a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become a Husky.
The goal of fully endowing the scholarship program is a top priority of the UW Athletic Department. A gift to the endowment program is invested into a fund managed by the University. A portion of the interest earned from the investment provides annual scholarship support. The remaining earnings are reinvested to grow the endowment and to provide scholarship and other program support in perpetuity.
Endowed grants-in-aid cover educational fees, books, and room and board for our student-athletes. Endowments may be specified for teams, individual positions, coaching positions, or general program support.
