Excellence has always been a part of Husky tradition. The Husky Excellence Fund provides critical resources to more than 700 student-athletes across our 24 teams. This fund is the true driving force that allows us to compete as champions on the playing field and in the classroom.

Gifts made to the Husky Excellence Fund help UConn Athletics invest in our programs in many ways, including:

  • Academic Support
  • Recruiting
  • New Equipment
  • Health & Wellness
  • Travel
  • Sports Performance/Strength & Conditioning
  • State-of-the-art Technology
  • Programmatic support



Providing student-athletes with an opportunity to obtain a quality education is our primary mission. As the cost of tuition continues to rise, private support is more essential than ever for the success of our 24 varsity sports and more than 700 student-athletes. Your support of the Husky Annual Scholarship Fund benefits student-athletes through annual scholarships. Funds raised help offset the costs for tuition, fees, books and room and board for UConn student-athletes.

Increasing scholarship support for our student-athletes will be a key to the future success of UConn Athletics.
