Endowed scholarship funds help provide the resources necessary to attract talented student-athletes to Georgia Tech. An endowment fund may be named for the donor or for someone the donor chooses to honor.

The Athletic Association's scholarship endowment has a current market value of more than $30 million, which generates approximately $1.5 million annually. This means approximately 25 percent of the annual scholarship costs for student-athletes are funded by endowment.

Endowed scholarship funds are invested with the Georgia Tech Foundation (GTF) and earn income in perpetuity for scholarship support. The established annual payout from each endowment typically follows the guidelines established by the GTF. Earnings and appreciation beyond the payout rate are reinvested into the principal amount of the endowment in an effort to grow the endowment to cover inflation.

In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2007, a "full ride" scholarship cost the Georgia Tech Athletic Association approximately $15,000 for in-state and $30,000 for out-of-state student-athletes. An endowment to support a full athletic scholarship can be established with a gift or multi-year commitment of $500,000. An endowed partial scholarship fund can be established at a minimum level of $125,000.
