The Crimson Tide Scholarship Fund (CTSF) is the annual scholarship fund for Alabama Athletics, providing annual scholarship support for Crimson Tide student-athletes. Alabama Athletics is committed to funding the maximum number of scholarships allowed by the NCAA for the 21 sports we sponsor. As costs associated with tuition, educational fees, books, and room and board continue to rise, a healthy annual scholarship fund is vital to the long-term success and sustainability of the Athletics Department.
This year, Alabama Athletics is expected to spend more than $20 million on student-athlete scholarships. Funds raised through the CTSF go directly to this scholarship expense, offsetting the overall scholarship funding needed for the Athletics Department. Until such time as the scholarship endowment is fully funded, private philanthropic support of the CTSF is crucial to maintain the margin of excellence to ensure our proud tradition of academic and competitive success continues.
When you give to the CTSF, you can take pride in knowing that your contribution is helping a deserving student-athlete compete for championships while earning a degree from The University of Alabama.
