Champions & Scholars

Excellence On and Off the Field

UD Volleyball

The Champions & Scholars Fund was created to engage and embrace the Flyer Faithful from across the country. We partner together to sustain a proud tradition — providing and enhancing opportunities for more than 400 University of Dayton student-athletes on 17 teams.

All donors with an annual gift to the Dayton Flyers athletics program will be recognized as members of the Champions & Scholars giving society for the current fiscal year (July 1 - June 30).
