Football Scholarship Seating
The Scholarship Seating program generates funding for scholarship support for nearly 800 student-athletes competing on 25 teams. All monies raised via the Scholarship Seating program go directly towards the estimated $10 Million scholarship cost for our students incurred this year. This provides many Spartan fans the opportunity to get great seats while providing scholarship assistance for all our deserving student-athletes.
Despite escalating costs, the Spartan Fund helps to provide the resources necessary to run a comprehensive and competitive athletic program at the Big Ten and national level. We need your support more than ever to help provide much needed scholarship support.
Frequently Asked QuestionsI'm a member of the Spartan Fund and give money every year for a specific sport; does that money count toward my Scholarship Seating contribution for my Football season tickets?
No. Your Scholarship Seating contribution associated with your football season tickets must be designated to the Scholarship Seating Program (listed as Football Special Projects on your gift tax receipt). This is directly applied to support the scholarship fund which services 25 varsity sports and nearly 800 student-athletes.
Gifts donated for specific sport programs, specific support services, Sideline Club seating, Munn Club and Munn Suites, Basketball Special Projects and Courtside Seating or any other specific building project or endowment fund will NOT count toward your Football Scholarship Seating contribution.If I contribute to the Spartan Fund in advance of the seat contribution payments to renew my annual membership, can the money be applied to my Scholarship Seating contribution? For example, if I donated $1000 in December and I owe $1500 annually for my three season tickets...can I give the additional $500 with my football season ticket renewal application in May?
Yes. Your gifts must be designated for the appropriate Scholarship Seating allocation that you want the money to count towards (Basketball or Football). All Football Scholarship Seating contributions are due by June 30.Can I get a season parking pass for football with my Scholarship Seating contribution?
