Sport & Recreation Management
Funding for Sport & Recreation Management PhD Applicants
The Sport & Recreation Management program in the School of Tourism & Hospitality Management
at Temple University would like to invite applications for the PhD program. Annual funding of
$21,432 is available for four applicants that includes tuition remission and stipend for 20 hours of
research and teaching assistant activities. Applicants with interest in a variety of Sport Marketing
and/or Management research topics are encouraged to apply. Two funding slots will be devoted to
applicants with interest related to Non-Profit and Mass Participant Sport Events.
In recent years, Temple’s School of Tourism and Hospitality Management has developed a strong
focus in Sport and Recreation Management with 11 dedicated faculty. Temple offers a PhD in
Business Administration with a concentration in Sport & Tourism Management in conjunction with
the Fox School of Business. This program builds upon the strength of both schools and provides an
ideal environment to receive academic and research training for a successful career in academia. As a
result, our graduates can apply for either Sport Management or Business faculty positions.
The PhD program at Temple offers students the capacity to gain research and teaching skills. The
Sport & Recreation Program houses the Sport Industry Research Center (SIRC) which provides our
doctoral students the opportunity to receive applied research training which complements their
academic studies. SIRC offers students the opportunity to work as research assistants on existing
research projects with faculty and industry professionals while providing funding to present research
at academic conferences. In addition, PhD students gain valuable classroom training serving as
lecturers and teaching assistants in the undergraduate program. All PhD students must teach a
minimum of two semesters and serve as a research assistant for a minimum of two years.
