Entrance Awards in the School of Kinesiology

A $1000 Service Award was created in memory of Dr. Gordon L Diewert, who was killed by a drunk driver, to promote the prevention of drinking and driving. The award is granted annually on the basis of good academic performance and community service to a high school student entering the School of Kinesiology. The recipient must provide written evidence that they have participated in activities associated with the prevention of drinking and driving. Preference will be given to students who took leadership roles in their high school Dry Grad activities. Note, this scholarship is available only to new high-school graduating students directly entering first-year in the School of Kinesiology.
