UA Athletics is committed to offering the full number of scholarships authorized by the NCAA to our more than 650 student-athletes. Each year, however, mounting tuition and housing costs place greater pressures on the Athletic Department.
UA Athletics currently funds approximately $14.5 million annually for student-athlete scholarships in 19 varsity sports.
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.
In such a climate, private giving in the area of scholarship support is one of our highest priorities.
Donors interested in supporting UA athletic scholarships may do so in three ways:
- Giving to the Crimson Tide Scholarship Fund (formerly called 'A+');
- Giving to an existing scholarship endowment;
- Establishing a new scholarship endowment.
