Endowment Support

Permanent funding through endowments is critical to advancing the University of Washington Athletic Department’s promise of providing our student-athletes with every resource necessary to achieve their athletic and academic goals.

In 2013-14, scholarship costs for Husky student-athletes will exceed $10 million. Our current endowments will pay out just 16% of the scholarship bill, leaving the UW Athletic Department to cover the remaining cost. As tuition continues to rise, donor support through endowments is imperative to competing with the elite teams in the country. Often, the difference between an average program and one that excels nationally is a fully funded endowment. The cost to fully fund all Husky student-athlete scholarships is approximately $200 million. Our ability to attract champions is highly dependent upon a significant and sustainable endowment fund.

Scholarship Endowments

  • $650,000 - Endowed Full Scholarship
  • $250,000 - Endowed Partial Half Scholarship
Scholarship endowments directly support student-athletes by underwriting essential costs including tuition, room and board and books. A fully endowed scholarship allows student-athletes to focus on success in the classroom and on the field.

Program Endowments

  • $100,000 - Sport program of your choice
Program endowments are self-sustaining sources of funding that support operational expenses for our 21 teams including travel, recruiting and equipment. They allow donors to support a specific sport in a unique way, providing our coaching staffs with the necessary discretionary funds to compete among the nation’s best.
