Scholarship Program

The Timpany Center is proud to offer our Scholarship Program! The Scholarship Program allows participants the opportunity to work in a one-on-one setting with San Jose State University undergraduate students (primarily from the Department of Kinesiology). Twice a week, each scholarship participant meets with their assigned intern for an hour session. The Internship-Scholarship partnership creates the opportunity for the Timpany Center to meet the diverse needs of both community members and SJSU students. The arrangement builds relationships by providing services to those with low incomes, while simultaneously giving interns the chance to develop skills in assessment, program design and hands on experience in their related fields of Kinesiology.

The program currently runs during the Spring and Fall SJSU semesters. Typically the Spring program runs between mid-February and the end of May, and the Fall program runs between mid-September and the end of December.
