Academic and Extracurricular Excellence Scholarship

This scholarship is awarded to out-of-state students demonstrating academic and extracurricular excellence. Candidates must have a permanent residence outside the state of Indiana, be accepted as a major in the Department of Kinesiology, have a GPA of 3.85 higher, demonstrated financial need, and be engaged in the School through teaching, research, volunteering, club leadership or involvement; work in the Division of Recreational Sports; or with a company related to the majors or teaching of the School.

Nola Agha was a Kinesiology major at Indiana University from 1993 to 1996. She was educated by many wonderful professors and rounded off her education through employment in the Division of Recreational Sports and through leadership in the Kinesiology Club. As a California native, she understands the challenges faced by out-of-state students trying to focus on their studies and experiences while working to pay tuition. It is her love of education, her high respect for the faculty in the Department of Kinesiology, and the absence of scholarships expressly for out-of-state students that led her to create the Academic and Extracurricular Excellence Scholarship.
