Endowments are gifts that keep on giving. While The Crimson Standard is a capital initiative, Alabama Athletics is dedicated to ensuring that each student-athlete has access to a quality education to prepare them for a successful future. Endowments are invested by the University and a portion of the earnings provides annual scholarship support. The remaining earnings are reinvested to grow the endowment over time and to provide scholarship support in perpetuity.
As costs for scholarships continue to climb, building a healthy endowment is vital to the future of Alabama Athletics. Endowed scholarships cover tuition, educational fees, books and room and board for our student-athletes.
In addition to endowed scholarships, other endowments may be established in support of Alabama Athletics specified for teams, individual positions, coaching positions, facility maintenance or general program support.
