Athletic Department scholarships

Since SVSU entered the athletic arena in the late 1960s, generous donors have supported our students who work hard in the classroom and on the playing field (or court, lane, track or pool). Several of our donors have established scholarship endowments or annual scholarships to provide reliable ongoing support for our athletic teams. You may add to these funds to increase the amount of support we can provide to SVSU athletes, or you might wish to create a new scholarship.

Through the Cardinal Athletic Club, members provide financial support and inspiration to student-athletes and coaches, keeping alive the strong tradition of SVSU Athletics.
