It has been over 15 years since Marc Bulger played football for the Mountaineers, but the school left a lasting impression on him & his family.

It was announced this week that The Marc Bulger Foundation Athletic Scholarship has been established by the former WVU and NFL quarterback.

The scholarship will support student-athletes who have an immediate family member on active duty in the U.S. Military or serving as law enforcement officers.

“It’s always been one of my goals to give back to WVU; the University not only treated me well, but also my whole family, including my sisters (WVU women’s basketball players, Kate and Meg).  It was always a matter of figuring out the best way to give back.  It made sense to combine my passion for the military and those who serve with WVU.  Hopefully, this is just the start of something that will go beyond five years,” he said in a recent release.

The Marc Bulger Foundation was founded in 2007 and supports various charities such as Make-A-Wish Foundation, the USO of Missouri, and the St. Louis Police Foundation.  The Pittsburgh native also shows support of local initiatives such as the Steel City Marines Golf Tournament, and Golf Invitational for Sgt. Doug Vitale.

Bulger played quarterback for the Mountaineers from 1996-1999 and ranks No. 2 in career passing yards with 8,153.  He spent 11 years in the NFL with the Falcons, Rams, and Ravens.
