Joyce V Hiller Scholarship Fund
The Joyce V Hiller Scholarship Fund was created in 2000
to annually recognize, celebrate and support the achievements and
contributions of an undergraduate student in the Department of
Kinesiology at the University of New Hampshire. The Hiller Award will be
given this year by the Department of Kinesiology to a junior majoring
in one of the five options. This award will be for their use during
their senior year at UNH.
Two primary factors will be considered in the selection of
award winners. First, academic merit as determined by GPA and
recommendations of faculty will be a necessary though not sufficient
consideration in the selection process. Second, the individual must be
actively engaged in the service to youth- whether through teaching,
coaching, adventure programming, delivery of fitness training, etc.
The Barbara King Newman Memorial Scholarship Award
The prestigious award has been in existence since 1970
and many of its past recipients have become leaders in their area of
professional development. This award was created in the memory of
Barbara King Newman, a past faculty member of the Department of
Kinesiology who dedicated her life to the teaching of physical movement,
particularly with children.
A Newman Scholar must be an undergraduate Kinesiology
major with an option in Athletic Training, Exercise Science, Outdoor
Education, Physical Education, or Sport Studies. He or she
should be a junior or senior, an all-around student and give evidence of
scholarship and service to the Department, the University or the
community. He or she should possess athletic ability and strong
leadership potential. In short, the person should be the kind of person
you would want as a friend, teammate and be proud to have represent our
Department, School and the University of New Hampshire.
