Undergraduate & Graduate Kinesiology Scholarships Awarded Fall 2019
For Fall 2019, three undergraduate students – Liam Henson, Lester Henson and Regina Sid – and two graduate students – Eric Gasmin and Jeff Tuibeo – were selected as recipients of the Undergraduate & Graduate Kinesiology Scholarships.
Chosen by a committee of Kinesiology faculty and staff, these scholars are representative of the diverse, hardworking students enrolled in the department. For example, Lester Henson, a junior, serves as a teaching assistant for the Anatomy Laboratory, a lead tutor and coordinator for the SOAR TRIO Program that provides student support services and, is co-president of the Exercise is Medicine Club at SF State.
Regina Sid, an aspiring physical therapist comments, “The ultimate reward in this career is the feeling of knowing I helped someone get back onto the playing field or back to work, and that is what is motivating me to work towards this degree.”
Because of these awards, they have less worry about finances and can devote their attention to their academic and professional pursuits.
The Undergraduate & Graduate Kinesiology Scholarship funds were established through the generosity of Dr. Constance Birkie, professor emerita of the Department of Kinesiology. As past chair, she saw the need to make available financial assistance to kinesiology majors regardless of their concentration/emphasis, or whether they were full-time or part-time students. Up to $1,000 is available annually from each fund, with the awardees chosen on the basis of scholarship, financial need and service to the department.
