2015 Northeastern Recreation Research Symposium



The Northeastern Recreation Research (NERR) Symposium is proud to announce a limited number of scholarships for graduate and undergraduate students. For the past 12 years, the NERR has awarded young scholars an opportunity to present their scholarly work in a positive and constructive setting as well as broaden their views on the collaborative academic and practitioner world. The scholarships will cover the registration fee for the Symposium.

Application Instruction

Interested students should send their application package including the following two items (as two attached PDF files each bearing applicant’s last name and first initial) to the NERR Conference Chair, Dr. Thomas Wickham, at wickham@calu.edu.

  • A one-page letter describing how the student’s academic and professional interests will be enhanced by the Symposium. Applicants may also include information on past contributions to and involvement with NERR.
  • A letter of recommendation from one faculty member.

The application package must be received by email no later than December 1, 2014. Please note only full and complete scholarship application packages received by the deadline will be reviewed. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. Applicants will be notified by email on January 30, 2015.

Winners will be emailed a special registration link for online registration. Winners are expected to attend the entire conference and to attend the Tuesday lunch.
