Your contribution nurtures future leaders in collegiate recreation

  • Discovery

    Before receiving the NIRSA Foundation Scholarship I was still in a discovery mindset of what it would mean to be a collegiate recreation professional. The 2001 conference and the experience I took away from being a scholarship winner opened my eyes to pursuing a career in Campus Recreation.  -Jay Iorizzo, Associate Director of Campus Recreation at Texas Christian University
  • Opportunity

    The NIRSA Foundation provided me with an opportunity to attend the National Conference [...] and work towards a career in recreation. Little did I know, the connections I made during the Conference would help lead me down the path to becoming the founding director of a Recreation & Athletics program at the newest research campus in the 21st century! -David Dunham, CRSS, Director of Recreation and Athletics at the University of California, Merced
  • Recognition

    With my NIRSA Foundation Scholarship, I attended the NIRSA Annual Conference; I remember mostly being recognized and appreciated by others who I didn’t know. [...]It was amazing how many people came to know me because of this scholarship. -David Davenport, Director of University Recreation at Austin Peay State University
