Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics is one of only twenty-two self-sustaining athletic departments in the country, therefore intercollegiate athletics does not receive any state or university funding for annual operating expenses. Your support is essential; it enables Penn State to provide student-athletes with the best possible experience and the resources they need to succeed both athletically and academically. Your contribution to the Nittany Lion Club also directly supports grant-in-aid, operational support along with academic and medical support for our 800 plus student-athletes. Continued financial stability allows us to maintain the tradition of academic and athletic excellence for all of our 31 sport programs.
