MATS Endowment

Student managers and athletic trainers provide valuable support to U-M varsity teams, making our Wolverines "Leaders and Best."

These students -- many of them Kinesiology majors -- reap educational and professional benefits from their experiences, but it comes at a significant cost in terms of time commitment. While their peersĀ are paid for part-time jobs -- and some for internships -- most student managers and athletic training students are not. Providing scholarship support for these students is a meaningful way to enhance their student experience.

Our goal is to create a one-year scholarship to support a rising Kinesiology senior currently serving as a:

  • volunteer student manager (any Kinesiology major); or
  • athletic trainer (AT majors fulfilling clinical requirements for their degree).

To this end, the Kinesiology Alumni Society (KAS) Board is establishing the Managers and Athletic Trainers Scholarship. To learn more, and help our fundraising efforts, please contact Louis Perdue (, Associate Director of Development and Major Gifts Officer in the School of Kinesiology.

Thanks, and Go Blue!
