You must meet the criteria set forth by the scholarship donors (see above descriptions) to apply. As long as criteria are met you may apply for more than one scholarship and you may use the same form.

Obtain an application from the Department of Health and Sport Sciences in the Rike Center office beginning February, 2015 or download one here (PDF). Complete the application, which includes an essay component and a recent (within the past year) letter of recommendation from a reference outside the the Department of Health and Sport Sciences or Athletic Departments.
  2. All materials (essay, recommendation and application) are due back in one envelope (no exceptions) and must be delivered to the Department of Health and Sport Sciences office in the Rike Center by Thursday, March 12, 2015 by 3:00 p.m. Late materials will not be considered.
