One of the values of Rec Sports is to build personal development opportunities. The department grants scholarships to assist with educational expenses. Applications are posted in March annually and awarded at the end of the spring semester.
Dave Griner Endowed Scholarship/Tim and Jayn Corral Endowed Scholarship
The Dave Griner Endowed Scholarship and Tim and Jayn Corral Endowed Scholarship are given to students who have been employed by Student Life Rec Sports for at least one semester and demonstrate leadership, professional development and service.
The Dave Griner Endowed Scholarship is named in honor of the former Rec Sports employee who worked from 1966-95. Dave encouraged student employees to be involved in rewarding, leadership-building activities.
Tim and Jayn Corral were avid participants in recreational sports, with Tim serving as an undergraduate employee, a graduate administrative associate and a full-time professional staff member. Together, they created the Tim and Jayn Corral Endowed Scholarship Fund to recognize and assist student employees with their educational expenses.
Mary A. Daniels Scholarship
The Mary A. Daniels Scholarship provides up to $2,500 to graduate, professional or undergraduate students based on academic achievement and a commitment to campus leadership. Daniels is a former assistant vice president for Student Life, and was a Rec Sports staff member early in her career.
Danny Price Scholarship
The Danny Price scholarship was established by Danny Price Charities, Inc. during the COVID-19 pandemic. Funding will be awarded to Rec Sports student employees who have demonstrated commitment, leadership and service to the department and are in need as a result of the financial impacts of the pandemic.
