Robert Mott Memorial Scholarship Endowment

The Robert Mott Memorial Scholarship Endowment was established in memory of Robert who was Cal Poly’s basketball coach and the school’s first baseball coach.  He helped establish the Physical Education Department (Cal Poly didn’t have a PE Department at this time) and served as its head for the next 31 years.  In the fall of 1987 Mott was inducted into Cal Poly’s Inaugural Athletic Hall of Fame and Distinction in recognition of his outstanding service as a teacher, coach, mentor, and leader.  The scholarship supports senior and credential kinesiology majors with an interest in teaching or coaching in California schools after graduation.
