What Is The Red & White Scholarship Fund?

The Red & White Scholarship program was established to help offset the university's high cost of recruiting and retaining the finest student-athletes in the nation.  All funds will be used for scholarships for student-athletes.  The Red & White Scholarship Fund also has an annual membership component that is in effect one year from date of gift.


Investing In Champions

Caring people make investments in the things they consider important. They invest time, talent, and support in what they believe can make a difference for themselves and in the lives of others. For nearly a century the WSSU Athletic Department developed a tradition of producing superb student athletes. Since 2003, nearly 80 percent of WSSU's basketball and football student-athletes and over 84 percent of WSSU's Olympic sport student-athletes have graduated on schedule. These are just a few points of pride that are achieved by our student-athletes. This is also why we all must continue to support the Athletic program at WSSU in order for the tradition to continue.  The support of the Red & White Scholarship Fund helps provide scholarships to invest in the future athletic and academic endeavors of our student-athletes.
