The Albany State University Athletic Department will be the recipient of the NCAA Division II Coaching Enhancement Grant and the NCAA Division II Ethnic Minorities and Women’s Internship Grant. The former allocates NCAA funding for the creation of new, full-time assistant coaching positions at NCAA D-II member institutions and also is purposed to foster access, recruitment, and selection and to help ensure the long-term success of ethnic minorities and women. The latter appropriates funds to member institutions that have demonstrated a commitment to bolstering ethnic minority and gender representation in athletic administration and assistant coaching positions. 

We are incredibly thankful to the NCAA for their continued support of Division II schools through these grant opportunities and for selecting ASU as the recipient of two grants,” said Director of Athletics, Dr. Kristene Kelly. “These grants will undoubtedly help us on our continuous quest of #CreatingLegacies at ASU.”

Beginning with the 2024-25 academic year, the grants will finance a new full-time assistant coach for the softball team and a one-year post for a Coordinator of Football Operations.
