The Deborah Salierno Kristopik '85 Scholarship Fund

This scholarship was created by alumni, family and friends of Deborah Salierno Kristopik, Class of 1985, who passed away in May 2020. The Scholarship shall award $2,500 on an annual basis until the funds have been expended. The preference for this fund is to provide scholarships for students who participate in the Equestrian Club and demonstrate financial need. Should there be a year in which no member of the Club has a demonstrated need for financial assistance, the second preference is to support a female student who is majoring in Physical Education. Should there be a year in which no student matching either preference has demonstrated financial need, then the Scholarship may be awarded to any deserving student with financial need.

Dr. Kenneth A. Wall, G’73, DPE ’75 International Travel Award

This travel award was established in honor of Ken Wall, who had a 40-year career at Springfield College. During his tenure, he served as graduate assistant for the men's basketball team under the direction of Ed Bilik '57, G'62, an associate professor of International Studies and director of the Doggett International Center, and then as an associate professor of sport management and recreation. Wall’s legacy is that of opening the world to Springfield College students and Springfield College to the students of the world. It is hoped that this award made in his honor will, in a small way, give assistance and encouragement to deserving students who wish to explore the world, just as he did in his career at Springfield College. For those interested in Dr. Wall's Travel Award, we ask you a question asked often by Professor Wall ... "Do you have your passport ready?"
