The goal for the Panther Scholarship Club this year was $1 million in cash. There are still renewals out there that have yet to be sent in that would get the PSC to close to $1 million. This is a great step for our program, and this trend of getting more people associated with the PSC needs to continue. The golf tours this summer are great opportunities to invite friends to see just what the PSC does, and how much it affects the student-athletes.

Reading the Courier article, a number of the top fundraisers for the PSC are also active on the Panther Nation site. They are among the real diehard Panthers--raising money, giving money and offering opinions!

Going by the numbers presented there has been a 32% increase in cash contributions. I know we all wish someone could wave a magic wand and suddenly UNI Athletics would be swimming in money, but in the real world that is outstanding. Congratulations to all the PSC workers and volunteers for a job well done.

Now a question, is this money used to pay scholarships on a current basis or to endow scholarships?

Good question. I think it's all current scholarships, but it might be endowed. Very good question that I'm sure someone else could answer.

Some of this cash raised each year should be going to endow scholarships. (I don't know the ins and outs of endowments or the legality, but if it's legal...it would be great to have UNI athletics scholarships totally endowed in a handful of years.

It would be great, but UNI only has like 5% of it's scholarships endowed. UNI has a long way to go.

Just taking a rough estimate I'd say it would take something around $120 million give or take $20 million to fully endow scholarships, so yeah we probably have quite a ways to go on that.

Actually with tuition increases at 20% a year there is no amount of money that will fully endow scholarships, but hopefull we've seen the end of the double double digit increases.
