Division of Athletics
UConn's basketball programs help generate a dominant percentage of the Division of Athletics' external revenue, nearly $11 million of which annually goes toward scholarships. Thus, keeping the men's and women's basketball programs strong and competitive is critical for the Division's future, in support of our mission to provide outstanding academic and athletic opportunities for our student-athletes.
The Werth Family UConn Basketball Champions Center will have a profound impact on our ability to generate revenue, recruit talented student-athletes, and provide scholarships for deserving young men and women who proudly wear the Husky uniform.

While winning championships is always important, providing student-athletes with the opportunity to obtain a great education is the primary goal at UConn. Scholarship costs have increased significantly over the past decade, and your support provides us with the ability to continue to recruit the best student-athletes in the county.
The Husky Annual Scholarship Fund provides financial support to fund scholarships for UConn student-athletes through a general scholarship fund. Funds raised help offset the costs for tuition, fees, books and room and board for over 700 student-athletes.
For those who wish to help enhance the overall experience of our student-athletes there is the Husky Excellence Fund. Your support of this fund helps to support the operating budgets for our 24 sports and assists our student-athletes as they annually compete for conference and national championships.
