Furman has always supported student-athletes, with heavy emphasis on student.

Our athletes are competitors in the classroom and on the field, rising to the occasion to meet Furman’s rigorous academic and training schedules. To compete at their best, they depend upon outstanding coaches, excellent training and competition facilities, and a relentless commitment to maintaining the competitive edge that winning in the Southern Conference and in NCAA Division I sports require.

Funding Opportunities
Student-Athlete Scholarship Endowment

Furman is among the smallest Division I schools in the Southern Conference, and our greatest challenge as an institution is to fund athletics scholarships to keep us competitive and relevant on the national stage. During the campaign, our greatest priority will be to fund these scholarships. 

Donors have the opportunity to secure the permanence of our student-athletes’ ability to compete and win by endowing scholarships that provide these necessary resources in perpetuity. Endowing athletics scholarships ensures Furman’s ability to continue providing a vibrant and holistic student-athlete experience for years to come. 

  • Goal: $10,000,000
The Potential is Extraordinary

Guided by our strengths as a university, focused on learning experiences that empower students to achieve their most inspiring ambitions, we will do more than meet our mission and advance Furman’s reputation for excellence. As we become a national model for higher education, we will, through our graduates, influence action and ideas across the 21st century. This is the possibility within reach, and with your support we will make it happen.


Clearly Furman Priorities

Building on the best of Furman, we will elevate the university's excellence, access and impact through these five campaign priorities.
