You will make a difference in Cougar Pride
Cougar Athletics will only succeed in the future with your financial help. Over the past decade, the cost of education has increased dramatically. At the same time, the UH Athletics Department has made a commitment to fully fund all 16 intercollegiate sports. Cougar Pride is committed to raising significant funds to offset the cost of athletic scholarships. Current costs to educate our student-athletes are:
- Scholarships (tuition and fees, room and board and books) cost over $5.3 million
- The annual cost per full scholarship for the 2009-10 is over $17,500.
- The UH Athletics Department provides 218 scholarships to more than 300 student-athletes in 16 intercollegiate sports
