Endowed scholarships and program funds provide stable, long-term financial support for University of Delaware Athletics. Endowed funds last in perpetuity and are invested to protect the enduring impact of the donor’s intentions. Endowed scholarships and program funds may be created with a minimum donor commitment of $50,000 given over a period of up to five years.
Each year, the University of Delaware awards more than 220 scholarships to deserving Blue Hens Student-Athletes. As the costs of providing an excellent education continue to rise, endowed scholarship funds provide crucial financial support to allow Delaware Athletics to continue to recruit and graduate talented student-athletes. Endowed scholarship donors are invited to the annual Athletics Celebration of Scholarship reception where they have the opportunity to meet the recipient(s) of their scholarship.
Individual teams or athletics department programs may be supported with the creation of an endowed program fund. Endowed program funds provide Blue Hens coaches with the resources they need for recruiting, training, travel and other areas of support. Endowed program funds may also support shared athletics department resources such as the weight room, training room, or academic services.
