Crimson Tide Scholarship Fund

The Crimson Tide Scholarship Fund (CTSF) provides UA Athletics with annual scholarship support for our student-athletes. UA Athletics currently funds approximately $16.1 million annually for more than 500 student-athlete scholarships in 21 sports. Funds raised through CTSF go directly to student-athlete scholarships.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowments are gifts that keep on giving. The goal of fully endowing the Athletics scholarship program is a top priority of the Crimson Tide Foundation to ensure that each student-athlete has access to a quality education to prepare them for a successful future. Endowments are invested by the University and a portion of the earnings provides annual scholarship support. The remaining earnings are reinvested to grow the endowment over time and to provide scholarship support in perpetuity.

Buildings and Facilities

Maintaining and improving the sixteen Athletics buildings and facilities is a never-ending task. The stadiums, practice facilities, complexes and arenas are constantly in use and always in need of improvements as well as general maintenance and cleaning. The Athletics Department Buildings and Facilities serve the training and competition needs of over 500 student-athletes each day. Additionally, the quality of our infrastructure enhances our Coaches' ability to recruit the top athletes to the University of Alabama. Give now to the Buildings and Facilities fund.

Nutrition and Dining Center

Alabama Athletics is constantly evaluating ways to improve our student-athletes' experience at the University of Alabama as well as ways we can help them be champions on and off the fields and courts. The nutrition program for our student-athletes is vital to their health and performance. The Athletics Department is excited about the work that has begun on a comprehensive 2-story dining facility. Once complete, the 22,000 square foot facility will be the nutrition hub for our over 500 student-athletes as it will serve all sports.

A project like this will truly enhance our student-athletes experience as we will be able to provide a space for all team meals before games and consistently meet their individual and team nutritional needs. The current estimate for this project is approximately $14 million dollars and we will certainly need your help to make this a reality. If you are interested in supporting the new Nutrition/Dining Facility, please contact the Foundation at or 205-348-9727.


One of the expressed missions of the University of Alabama Department of Athletics is to provide its student-athletes with the finest facilities possible to ensure they have the opportunity to compete for championships on the conference as well as national level. In order for the Crimson Tide to achieve its goals for its oldest sport, the restructuring of Sewell-Thomas is a top priority.
