Athletic Fundraising of the DAF
In the 2010 fiscal year the DAF received $1,793,053 in gifts to be designated to student athlete scholarships, team budgets, and athletic capital projects.
Endowing Athletic Scholarships
Davidson currently offers less money for athletic scholarships than any other school in the Southern Conference. The Davidson Athletic Foundation has begun a project to build our athletic scholarship endowments. This effort will allow Davidson to continue to provide a competitive environment for the best and brightest student athletes, and will strengthen Davidson's position as a liberal arts college recognized nationally for both its academic and its athletic programs.
Endowed Scholarship efforts currently active:
DAF Annual Fund
Each year the general DAF annual fund gifts go toward current-use scholarships, team equipment, and team travel purposes. Those gifts keep our teams alive. The Davidson Athletic Foundation raised just over $1 million in annual current-use funds in 2010.
The Bryan Scholars Program
For every incoming freshman class, the Bryan Scholars Program offers $30,000 annually to one male and one female scholar athlete. This scholarship seeks to reward those scholar athletes who have exceptional academic records, exhibit outstanding leadership abilities, and are considered superior athletes by their Davidson coaches.
