BYU Athletic Scholarships

Connect with a student-athlete and help put them on the field and in the classroom. Anyone can give any amount to support the Athletic Scholarship Fund at BYU.

Student-athletes are the heart and soul of the Athletic Department, every function of the department exists to serve and support the athletes. A scholarship donor has the unique opportunity to fund student-athlete scholarships and directly support a specific coach, team, and athlete. The Annual and Endowed Scholarship options allow you to meet and interact with the supported athlete and their coach on a personal level.
