Keep Playing the Game Scholarship

Sport Management alumni that have worked closely with Doc T understand his approach is rather unique. He is dedicated to his profession and students, blunt in communication and clear in his goal: encourage students to break out of their comfort zone through professional networking, challenging preconceptions and pushing the status quo in pursuit of a successful next step after UD. In the spirit of continued personal development, and with the goal to never stop playing the game, this fund continues Doc T’s relentless pursuit of taking it to the next level. Awards can be used toward graduate school, professional development, online training, and other approved career-related expenses. Recent UD Sport Management alumni considering advancement opportunities are encouraged to apply!
