Scholarship endowments are a key source of funding that can help ensure the long-term health of the Iowa State University athletics program.  Endowments help underwrite the costs of tuition, room, board, books, academic support and other student services for each of Iowa State’s 18 varsity sports.

The costs for scholarship support in the athletics department continue to escalate and securing endowments is one way to gain that support and also, if the donor wishes, recognize or honor an individual with a named endowment.

Athletics scholarship endowment naming opportunities are available to fully endow an athletics scholarship ($250,000) or name an endowed scholarship ($25,000).  Gifts may be pledged over time, typically three to five years.

Several of the existing department endowments have been named in honor or memory of an individual.
