Big Blue Scholarship Fund

General Scholarship Support:

The single-greatest need within an athletics department is the resource to provide tuition, room and board, books and academic support to student-athletes. All general scholarship gifts to Aggies Unlimited impact each and every Aggie student-athlete and are included in a member’s annual giving level.

General Ticketing Information:

Purchasing season tickets in certain locations at Maverik Stadium and inside the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum is a benefit of making an annual unrestricted contribution to Aggies Unlimited.

The Big Blue Scholarship Fund seating program consists of per-seat annual donation requirements in addition to the price of the season ticket. Donation requirements vary depending on the desired seat location.

All annual donations generated from the program are considered unrestricted gifts to Aggies Unlimited and are included in a member’s annual giving level.

Blue A Society

The Blue A Society (BAS) provides the philanthropic leadership for Utah State Athletics. The purpose of the BAS is to increase philanthropic revenues for USU Athletics, supporting operational needs and capital priorities.

A minimum pledge of $25,000 over a five-year period or donating an annual cash gift of $25,000 or more qualifies one as a Blue A Society member. USU Athletics will establish its top priorities, but Blue A Society donors have the opportunity to invest in the fund(s) of their choice, including Aggies Unlimited, Merlin Olsen Fund, capital funds, endowments, sport gift accounts, etc. The BAS will position Aggie student-athletes for greater success in the classroom, in competition, and in life after graduation.
