PhD Student Deeb wins Gary Sailes Graduate Diversity Scholarship at NASSS

The North American Society for the Sociology of Sports (NASSS) conference took place last week in Windsor, Ontario. At the conference, socio-cultural studies doctoral student Alexander Deeb was awarded the Gary Sailes Graduate Diversity Scholarship. Only one PhD student is selected to receive the award each year. Deeb is currently a second-year student in the socio-cultural studies of sport doctoral program. His research investigates multiracial athletes in sport. Featured left to right in the photo are Adam Love (his faculty advisor), Deeb, and Algerian Hart, who was Deeb’s master’s degree advisor in the sport management program at Western Illinois University. Deeb had also been awarded this scholarship as a master’s degree student in 2015, so he is now a two-time recipient. A more detailed description of the award can be found at the following site: https://nasss.org/awards/graduate-diversity-scholarship/.
