The Leo Goertz Student Internship Grant was designed to honor Leo Goertz’s legacy of serving as a mentor to countless students by providing hands-on learning experiences in the sports turf industry. This grant will be awarded to a student enrolled in an accredited college or university who is performing an internship under the guidance of a sports field manager at a professional, collegiate, or recreational athletic facility. This award is intended to help students with moving and/or living expenses associated with performing an internship and to make this experience more accessible to students interested in sports turf management.

Details of this grant as are as follows:

  • This grant is open to students interested in working in sports turf management and does not depend on them being enrolled in a turfgrass management program.
  • This grant is open to students attending a college or university in Texas, or to students attending a college or university outside of Texas but performing their internship in Texas.
  • Applications for this grant are due on May 15th during the year the student is performing the internship.
