Swimming Scholarship Endowment Program
The Athletic Scholarship Endowment Program was instituted to allow supporters to invest in the educational opportunities of UGA student-athletes. A gift to establish a scholarship provides income toward funding a scholarship each year and permanently memorializes the donor or any individual in whose honor the scholarship is named. A full scholarship is endowed through a gift of $150,000. These and other commitments represent the foundation of the Georgia
athletic program's future. For more information on the Scholarship Endowment Program or other giving opportunities, please call (706) 542-9220.
