Missed Fresno State Day of Giving? You can still be a champion of student success!


Since 1911, the University has grown to impact every facet of our region. For more than 100 years, Fresno State Athletics has fostered an unwavering sense of Bulldog pride throughout our community and remained committed to ensuring our student-athletes are successful athletically, academically and in their future endeavors. With 18 NCAA Division I teams, Bulldog student-athletes are being empowered to be our next generation of leaders.  They understand the importance of dedication, resilience and teamwork. When athletics and academics rise together, we elevate the quality of life in our beloved Valley, making everything we do #FortheV. 

Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund

Creating championship experiences for Bulldog student-athletes begins with funding scholarships. With 19 sports, 400+ students receiving athletic aid and the ever-increasing cost of education and competition, the challenge to raise scholarship dollars is greater than ever.

Only with the continued support of our Valley, can we continue to provide the necessary resources for our annual scholarships. We are thankful for those who have been with us for many years and look forward to growing our Red Wave family.
