To further help Tiger student-athletes leverage their NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) for opportunities, Cowley College athletics launched its official school-specific NIL marketplace in November, powered by Opendorse.

By visiting, Tiger fans can find any Cowley College student-athlete who has opted into the marketplace and book NIL deals such as video shoutouts, appearances, social media endorsements, and more.

Once a student-athlete receives a deal from fans or businesses through the marketplace, they can review and accept the terms, receive payment, and auto-generate tax documentation. All communication for the deal, from pitch to payment, happens through the Opendorse app, and the student-athlete receives compensation once the deal is complete.

The Cowley College NIL Marketplace is one of the many resources Tiger student-athletes have to help capitalize on their NIL while on campus. Other resources include disclosures through a mobile app, education sessions, personal brand-building tools, and now Opendorse.

“We are proud and excited to Partner with Opendorse to help navigate our student-athlete NIL (name, image, and likeness) opportunities,” Cowley College Athletic Director Jeff Fluty said. “This professional relationship will provide direction, education, and support for all student-athletes and the athletic department going forward.”

Every Cowley College student-athlete will have the opportunity to receive an Opendorse profile, which they can customize to let fans know more about their interests and the NIL deals they are seeking. The student-athletes can share their Opendorse profile on their social media accounts to help promote to their fans.

Opendorse is one of the leading NIL solutions for student-athletes. It maximizes NIL opportunities for more than 80,000 athletes and has facilitated thousands of NIL deals and endorsements at every level of sports since it was founded in 2012.
