Our mission at Maryland Athletics is to educate, develop and serve student-athletes through a culture of academic and athletic excellence. Through athletics, our students develop values and skills that prepare them for life. The combination of a University of Maryland world-class educational and athletic experience is fundamental to our student's development. 

One way we carry out our mission is through funding scholarships for our students through the Terrapin Club. Each year, financial support from TC donors helps our students achieve success in the classroom, in competition and in the community. 

Fully funding our scholarship bill is a significant and critically important part of the long-term sustainability of our program. Funding scholarships will also allow the Athletic Department to allocate more resources directly to our individual teams for recruiting, operations, and other costs associated with allowing our teams to participate at the highest level.
