John McLendon Foundation Postgraduate Scholarship
The Mark H. McCormack Department of Sport Management and The McLendon Foundation have partnered for the creation of the McCormack-McLendon Scholarship, an academic enrichment opportunity that will provide a selected McLendon Scholar tuition-free enrollment in UMass Amherst’s #1 globally ranked sport management master’s program, housed within the Isenberg School of Management.
The selected student from the McLendon community will have the option of pursuing either an MBA/MS dual-degree or one-year MS in Sport Management degree, while completing a graduate assistantship on campus during the term of study.
The partnership seeks to reinforce the impact and exemplary work already in place via The John McLendon Postgraduate Scholarship Program, which offers eight postgraduate scholarships to underrepresented candidates planning to pursue a master’s degree in athletics administration/sport management. To date, the program has awarded over 145 scholarships, totaling over $1.5 million.
To be considered for the scholarship, applicants should follow the eligibility requirements stated on McLendon’s website, and are encouraged to apply by February 1 via Isenberg’s Graduate Programs admissions page.
