Support for Current Operations for 2023-24

Athletic Scholarship Fund

The top priority for annual gifts, the Athletic Scholarship Fund is essential to obtaining a winning combination of athletic and academic excellence. Endowment distributions cover less than one-third of annual scholarship costs. The Athletic Scholarship Fund provides direct support for student-athlete scholarships, helping bridge the gap between endowment income and scholarship costs, as well as support for current operations.

Donors can fund an Everyday Champions scholarship by pledging the cost of an full annual scholarship over a four-year period, and receive the opportunity to meet and nurture a personal relationship with their scholarship recipient.

The goal for the 2023-24 Giving Year for the Athletic Scholarship Fund is $5 million



The TECH Fund is the per-seat contribution* program for preferred seats for Georgia Tech Football, Men's Basketball and Baseball.
