Scholar Awards

 

AKA NATIONAL SCHOLAR AWARDS


The annual scholar awards honor a select number of students from member departments, recommended by department faculty, whose academic and leadership records are distinctive. The awards are intended to recognize and promote academic excellence, to further the professional competence and dedication of academically accomplished students and to promote kinesiology and its related fields.

AKA sponsors awards in four categories: Undergraduate Scholar, Master's Scholar, Doctoral Scholar, and the Graduate Student Writing. The specific criteria for the awards are found on the nomination forms, as are the nomination submission requirements. Nominees for the 2018 awards should be expected to graduate in the 2018 calendar year. For each award, each member institution can nominate one individual as their local award recipient, and those recipients will receive a certificate of recognition and appear on the AKA website.  All local recipients will then be nominees for the national awards in each category.

The AKA Awards Committee will review the nominations and select the national award winners. The national award recipients will receive a $250 gift certificate from Human Kinetics in addition to a national certificate of recognition. National award winners will also be noted on the AKA website. Nominations are due each year on or about March 1st.
 
Nomination forms for each of the four awards are found below. Nominations should be sent via e-mail to both Chris Hearon christopher.hearon@tamuk.com  and AKA Business Office Staff@americankinesioloigy.org no later than the deadline listed on the form.
