Kinesiology student awarded grant for Black Biomechanists Outreach program
Auburn University School of Kinesiology graduate student Eric Finley was awarded an outreach grant from The Biomechanics Initiative. The Biomechanics Institute annually hosts an International Biomechanics Day to promote biomechanics to elementary, middle and high school students. This year, the organization hosted a grant competition to provide financial support to universities and organizations that host an International Biomechanics Day event.
Finley was one of five grant recipients, and his funding will be used to host an event for students at Booker T. Washington High School in Tuskegee, Alabama, and Dadeville High School in Dadeville, Alabama. As part of the requirements for the grant, the programs will serve underrepresented populations.
