“Ours is a world of challenge and possibility, and we are driven.”

Your generous, tax-deductible support of the School of Kinesiology is more critical than ever. Gifts that fund scholarships and fellowships provide support for current and future students while easing the burden of tuition. They also enable the School to compete nationally and internationally for top students, enhancing our research, and strengthening our ability to develop partnerships with communities, schools, and organizations.

Your support gives our students the much needed resources for growing knowledge and understanding in such areas as childhood obesity, health and wellness, the impact of sport on girls and women, and movement science.

Courtney Boucher

Meet Courtney Boucher, the three-time recipient (2019, 2020, 2021) of the Pam Borton Endowment for the Promotion of Girls and Women in Sport Leadership. Thanks to the support of the Pam Borton Fellowship, Boucher has been able to actively participate in and advance initiatives for the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport.

I’m honored to be given the opportunity to help contribute to the Tucker Center’s incredible and important research mission. I want to thank Pam Borton and Lynn Holleran in particular for their support and for being such incredible women leaders in sport who have paved the way for me and countless others.
