Recreation Program Legacy Scholarship 2013
The Legacy Scholarship honors students in previous Recreation Program Phases who have made continuing contributions to the fund to help offset the costs associated with Recreation Majors’ internships. Over the past two years, Phase IV students have raised over $4,000 dollars for the current Legacy Scholarship fund though their fundraising efforts. The award goes to a student(s) in Phase II of the Recreation Program who demonstrate financial need in meeting the costs associated with the completion of their professional internship. The scholarship award for each year depends on available funds, but typically ranges from $250 to $500.
The following scholarship application materials must be submitted to Katey Roemmele in the Recreation Program Office by Thursday February 21st.

The Recreation Program Legacy Scholarship will be awarded to student(s) based on demonstration of the coherence between the internship and the applicant’s career goals and financial need.
