About Cougar Pride
The mission of Cougar Pride is to provide financial support for student-athlete scholarships and priority needs of the athletic department while fostering camaraderie, sportsmanship and school pride among students, faculty & staff, alumni and friends of Houston Athletics.
The annual cost per full scholarship to educate these men and women for the 2013-14 year is more than $20,000 and on the rise. Cougar Pride's long term goal is to fully fund all Houston student-athlete scholarships on an annual basis. Despite Cougar Pride reaching its 2013 fundraising goals with an all-time annual fundraising record, it still fell short by approximately $1.8 million of fully funding the financial aid of all Houston student-athletes. To offset 2014-15 scholarship costs of over $6 million, the Cougar Pride fundraising goal is $4.1 million in 2014.
