THE GOLDEN EAGLE SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Golden Eagle Scholarship Fund provides opportunities for our student-athletes, many of which might never have had the chance to earn a degree while playing the sport they love. This fund helps meet the needs for additional resources by allowing student-athlete scholarship needs to be fulfilled. Help make a scholastic impact on an annual basis or create a scholarship endowment program to provide scholarship support in perpetuity. All gifts to the Golden Eagle Scholarship Fund are matched dollar for dollar. All donations to the GESF are 100% tax deductible. To give a gift to the scholarship fund, please click here.
