Football Scholarship (6205)

Athletics Football Players on the field

The football team’s success translates into positive publicity for the university, the town, and the region.

The maximum football scholarships allowed in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference is thirty-six equivalencies. In recent years, IUP has been able to distribute the equivalent of twenty-two scholarships for football. The challenge is to raise enough funds to distribute the maximum number of scholarship equivalencies—thirty-six.

Curt Cignetti recently was hired as IUP’s football coach. The son of former IUP coach Frank Cignetti, the younger Cignetti has worked in college football for twenty-eight years, most recently at the University of Alabama under Nick Saban. The future of IUP football is full of promise with reenergized leadership.

Having the thirty-six scholarship equivalencies will enable IUP to attract the best players and ensure they can concentrate on academics and athletics without having to seek part-time employment to supplement their educational costs.
