Share this fund:

Long-term fundraising campaign to increase athletic scholarship awarding for our Nordic Ski Team student-athletes. The Nordic Scholarship Endowment will:

 

  • Add a full athletic scholarship awarding amount to both our Women's and Men's Nordic Ski Teams.
  • Allow us to recruit the best prospective student-athletes to our team.
  • Match the athletic scholarship awarding to our competitor collegiate skiing programs.
  • Provide an opportunity for you to give directly to our student-athletes.

Allow us to acheive our program vision t be the best NCAA Nordic Skiing program in the nation!

Target fundraising goal of $50,000 by 2021 in order to establish the Nordic Scholarship Endowment. This capital will initiate the endowment and produce a payout of 4.5% annually.
