TweetThis! Dorothy Harris Endowed Scholarship (for Female American Citizen or Female Legal Resident)

The Dorothy Harris Endowed Scholarship was established in honor of Dr. Dorothy Harris, pioneer and advocate for women in sports. Its goal is to assist women graduate students pursuing one of the following fields of study: physical education, sport management, sport psychology or sport sociology.

As a sports psychologist, Dr. Harris spent many years studying the positive influence of sports participation on athletes. She received the first Fulbright scholarship ever awarded to someone in the field of Sport Psychology, and was the first resident sport psychologist at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs in 1980. She became known and internationally acclaimed as an advocate for women in sport through her books, articles and presentations around the world. She firmly believed that sports participation was as important and beneficial for females as males, and spent her lifetime fighting for the rights of young girls and women to play sports.

Those who knew Dr. Harris spoke of her courage and tenacity, her energy, her ability to be “happy in her own skin,” and her willingness to help others see and accept the truth about themselves. Of the philosophy by which she lived her life, Dr. Harris said that it centered on “...trying to treat others as I would want to be treated. And being comfortable within my own hide...avoiding internal conflict...and having any action consistent therewith.”
