The gift will completely fund the Kerry Collins Endowed Scholarship for Quarterbacks. On an annual basis, a player at the quarterback position will receive the Collins scholarship.
"My years at Penn State were meaningful to me, not only for the impact on my future as an athlete but also on preparation for a productive life when my football career is over," Collins said. "Penn State always will be very much a part of anything I do and this gift is a demonstration of my respect for the University and its athletic program."
Athletic director Tim Curley said the contribution is the first in a new program which permits donors to fully endow a position on the football team, or any other athletic squad, with a $250,000 gift.
