• Sports Excellence Funds
To compete at the highest levels, each of UTEP’s 16 varsity athletic programs require additional funding above and beyond their standard operating budget. Through the generosity of donors and their contributions, sports are able to purchase supplementary items and services that are critical to success. Many times, sport excellence dollars are used for specialized equipment, technology, team travel and meals, minor facility improvements, and other similar costs that increase competitiveness as well as enhance the student-athlete experience.
