Athletic Scholarships

For the first time in UC San Diego history, the campus is able to fundraise for athletic scholarships and offer prospective high-merit student-athletes scholarships that will help make it possible for them to attend UC San Diego. Join us as part of this groundbreaking opportunity that will help attract the best and brightest—and take UC San Diego Athletics to the next level.

Triton Athletic Fund

The National Collegiate Scouting Association’s Collegiate Power Rankings has repeatedly placed UC San Diego first in Division II. Your support of the Triton Athletic Fund will help meet the greatest needs of the program. You can also designate your gift to champion any of our 23 men’s and women’s teams.

Alex G. Spanos Athletic Performance Center

UC San Diego is currently fundraising to build a new Athletic Performance Center, which will feature a strength and conditioning area, outdoor performance plaza, hydrotherapy room and more for student-athletes. Currently, strength-training equipment at RIMAC is shared by the entire student body, with space at times reserved for student-athletes; the new space will benefit the entire student population with improved access to weight-training equipment. Join UC San Diego alumni, parents and friends in supporting this much needed facility, and help us enhance the student-athlete experience. Read about Dean Spanos’ gift to the project here.

Triton Ballpark

UC San Diego boasts one of the country’s top NCAA Division II baseball programs. Join us in building a new, cutting-edge Triton Ballpark that will match our student-athletes’ motivation and talents.
