There are three scholarships available to Recreation students. The Recreation Program Legacy Scholarship is internal and available only to Recreation majors. Please see below for the complete description and application process.
Recreation majors are also eligible for two additional PEHR departmental scholarships: Double-Eagle III (with preference to students whose emphasis is in Recreation) and Willis Ball Memorial. For additional information on how to apply, click here.
Recreation Program Legacy Scholarship 2014
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 $6,000 dollars for the current Legacy Scholarship fund though their fundraising efforts. The scholarship award for each year depends on available funds, but typically ranges from $250 to $500.
To qualify, students must:
- Be a Recreation Major
- Successfully complete Phase II
Further, applicants will be evaluated based on:
- Demonstration of financial need
- The coherence between the internship and the applicant’s career goals
In some cases consideration may also be given to academic history and/or phase involvement. Award decisions are made by a selection committee comprised of Recreation Program faculty.
The following scholarship application materials must be submitted to Katey Roemmele in the Recreation Program Office by Thursday, March 6.
- A completed Recreation Program Scholarship Form
- An unofficial transcript/academic history
