Blue Feather Athletic Association


Annual contributions and generous gifts to the Blue Feather Athletic Association make it possible for our student athletes to achieve high levels of academic, athletic, and personal success at DSU. Athletics is very important to DSU and to the 300 student athletes proudly wearing the blue and gray each year. Over 200 people like you generously donate to the Blue Hawk Club each year- helping us move closer to providing a championship experience for every student athlete in 13 NAIA sports. Scholarships, program enhancements, facility upgrades, and academic and life skills programming are all critical ingredients that foster academic, athletic, and social success at the “championship” level. Invest today in tomorrow’s tradition. HAWKS ARE UP!


When you make a donation to the Blue Feather Athletic Association, you support every aspect of a student athlete’s experience at DSU, from the moment they are recruited to the day they walk across the stage for graduation. But, the investment you make does not stop there. Doors are opened for career opportunities because of the excellent degrees earned from Dickinson State University.

Your gift provides the learning experience for student athletes- in the classroom, in athletics training and competition, and in service to a greater community.

"Getting a scholarship from the BFAA means a lot. It’s a reward for all of the hard work the student-athletes put in. It helps with paying for school and other expenses because a lot fo the student-athletes do not have the time to get full-time jobs during their sport season. The generosity of so many people giving money to help athletes like myself, I will forever be grateful” Dylan Skabo, Accounting Major, Theodore Roosevelt Honors Student

When making an investment you are able to:

  • Give student athletes every opportunity for academic success
  • Enjoy the excitement of premier NAIA athletics competition
  • Wear blue and gray with pride
  • Commit to the mission of uncompromised excellence of Dickinson State University Athletics
Our goal is to fund ALL of our scholarships with endowed or annual named scholarships.


When you invest in DSU Athletics by becoming a member of the BFAA, you give every student athlete the opportunity to earn a college degree and compete in the sport they love.

Our goal is to have over 500 members of the Blue Hawk Club and raise over $500,000 annually for our student athletes, as the majority of the Blue Hawk Club funds are used for scholarships. Your investment is critical to ensuring we are recruiting the best possible students to DSU and competing for championships in every sport.
