Dr. Sarah Kulkofsky

Sarah Christine Kulkofsky, began working at Texas Tech University as an Assistant Professor of Human Development and Family Studies in 2007. During her time at TTU she excelled in her position and received many accolades.  "Dr.K," as students often referred to her, truly loved research and her students, and instilled her thirst for knowledge in them.

Dr. Kulkofsky passed away at the age of 30, on January 13, 2011.  Texas Tech University students, faculty, and staff established the Dr. Sarah Kulkofsky Scholarship in her honor.

An undergraduate researcher is defined as a current Texas Tech University undergraduate student engaged in a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor.

The scholarship award(s) is up to $500 per student, with equal disbursements in the fall and spring semesters.
