Marquette’s athletic programs have enjoyed a long tradition of excellence in the game and in the classroom. The Blue & Gold Athletic Scholarship Fund provides current-use scholarships to help cover the tuition and academic costs associated with the education of Marquette student-athletes.
Marquette student-athletes have proven to be champions in and out of the classroom:
- Women’s soccer goalie Natalie Kulla was named 2011 Big East Female Scholar Athlete of the Year.
- More than 20 student-athletes and coaches received all-conference honors in 2011–12, and several Golden Eagles were named to All-America rosters.
- During the 2011–12 academic year, more than half of Marquette’s student-athletes had cumulative GPAs of 3.0 or higher and 11 of the 16 programs posted team GPAs of 3.0 or higher.
- Several student-athletes were recognized individually: Men’s basketball forward Jae Crowder was named Big East player of the year for 2011–12, and men’s soccer midfielder Calum Mallace was named Big East midfielder of the year for 2011.
- All 16 athletic programs participate in hundreds of hours of community service projects throughout the year, working in concert with the university’s mission of being men and women for and with others.
Athletic scholarships are imperative to the success of Marquette’s athletic programs. During the past decade, the Blue & Gold Fund has provided more than $20 million in scholarship support to Marquette student-athletes, and it continues to be one of the university’s top priorities.
