Sports play a pivotal role in the lives of many, benefitting both physical and mental health.
At the same time, sports teach us important principles and skills, such as teamwork and problem-solving. Sports build a community by giving players the opportunity to connect with teammates that have shared interests and values. The Scholarship for Sports Majors will emphasize the importance of sports and the positive impact they can have on students. Students are encouraged to apply if they are studying sports or a sport-related subject, including majors like exercise science, materials sciences and engineering, athletic training, sports management, turfgrass management, and occupational therapy, among others.
Students of any education level are eligible to apply if they are majoring in a sports-related field. In your application, write about how sports have impacted your life, why your major is important to you and what dreams you hope to pursue with this degree.
