Scholarship Series

In 2023, Marshall Recreation launched a series of community events crafted to offer enjoyable competitions. Beyond the thrill of these gatherings lies a laudable cause. A substantial portion of each event’s registration fee directly contributes to the recently established Scholarship and Development Fund.

Sponsored by the Marshall Recreation Center, this fund is a focal point for the Student Recreation Council, playing a pivotal role in fostering the development of our dedicated staff. It not only provides cash scholarships to students it also offers financial assistance to all staff through leadership experiences, facilitating conference participation, and aiding in career development both within and beyond Campus Rec—thus shaping the leaders of tomorrow.
