Robert H. Brooks Sports Science Institute

Due to the generosity of the late Robert H. Brooks ’60, the Robert H. Brooks Sports Science Institute began in the 1990s with an emphasis on motorsports engineering, sports communication, sports management and sports marketing. Its support for motorsports engineering was a leading factor in the creation of the renowned Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR). The institute seeks to marry areas of excellence on the field, in the classroom and in the research lab through the academic study of sport sciences.
 
The institute continues today through research and scholarships as well as legacy professors named for Brooks’ son and three colleagues who died in a 1993 plane crash. It is an effort that is growing and evolving with the addition of research seed grants, lecture series, and other initiatives.
 
There are two ways you can make an impact on our undergraduate and graduate students. The Markvan Bellamy Brooks Endowed Scholarship is endowed in memory of Robert H. Brooks’ late son, Mark Brooks ’91. This fund provides scholarships to students who major in one of the legacy programs: motorsports engineering, sports communication, sports management and sports marketing. You can also provide funding to graduate assistantships through the Brooks CU Sports Science Institute QuasiEndowment. Graduate assistantships are awarded to graduate students in one of the legacy programs. With your support, these Brooks Scholars will excel far beyond the classroom and be prepared to perform at the highest levels within the sports industries.
