Kipp awarded Eloise Jaeger Scholarship
Lindsay Kipp, School of Kinesiology PhD student in Physical Activity Social and Behavioral Sciences, has been awarded the 2010-11 Eloise M. Jaeger Scholarship for Students in the Tucker Center award in the amount of $2,000. The Eloise M. Jaeger Scholarship was established to ensure that the best female and male students in the nation are able to participate in significant education and research initiatives designed to improve the lives of girls and women.
This scholarship provides an opportunity for promising young students to meet their educational and career goals, especially those who might not otherwise have the financial means to further their aspirations. Kipp will use the funds to support her project titled, "Predictors of Well-being in Female Adolescent Athletes," researching determinants of female adolescent athletes' physical and psychological well-being. The research intersects the areas of gender, adolescent psychology, and prevention science and explores a series of relationships among mechanisms of coaching influence, psychological need, satisfaction, and indices of physical and psychological well-being. Findings from the study will be used to design an intervention study to promote positive coaching behaviors in an effort to improve perceptions of competence, autonomy, and relatedness, and ultimately indices of subjective well-being.
