Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun fans can support athletics in a new way. A comprehensive fundraising effort to endow all athletic scholarships at UL is continuing.

'Operation Kickoff' is the initial phase of this project, and its' goal is to raise $1-1.5 million for summer school scholarships for student-athletes, primarily football players. This campaign will allow Ragin' Cajun fans to demonstrate their commitment to helping the Ragin' Cajun football program and new head coach Rickey Bustle.

Donors who do not wish for their gift to be used for scholarship support, may choose to restrict their gift for an endowed fund that will support any sport, or other athletic need, of their choosing.

For questions or for more information, contact the Office of Development at (337) 262-4438 or by emailing gift@louisiana.edu.
