It Takes a Team Effort!
The Mountaineer Athletic Association (MAA) is dedicated to a partnership between the community, student athletes, and the athletics staff of Eastern Oregon University. We exist to; build a strong university, support high quality athletic programs, and raise funds primarily for student athlete financial assistance.
Any financial aid or assistance to prospective or enrolled students in money or in kind, except that which comes from members of their immediate family or from those upon whom they are legally dependent, shall be administered by the institution under policies and procedures established by the institution through its regularly constituted committee on student loans and scholarships. Under no conditions may an individual or organization provide direct financial assistance to a previously enrolled or prospective student.
All donations to the general athletics program and/or the athletics scholarship fund by outside organizations shall be deposited in an institutional fund and be administered by appropriate institutional committees under the control of the chief executive officer.
Individuals or groups who have made financial contributions to our athletic program are considered athletic representatives (‘boosters”). Athletic Representatives and Institutional Staff Members are not permitted to provide a student athlete with any extra benefit. The term “extra benefit” refers to any special arrangement by an institutional employee or representative of the institution’s athletic interests to provide the student-athlete or his or her relatives with any form of extra benefit.
