About our Professional Level Scholarships
The Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association, Inc. has inaugurated a scholarship program honoring outstanding students from the EATA membership who have excelled academically and clinically as professional (entry-level) athletic training students. At present, eleven $3000 grants are awarded annually to students in entry-level accredited programs who have participated with distinction in a college or university athletic training program. These awards are meant to encourage the recipients to continue their education toward a professional athletic training degree and pursue a career in athletic training.
Each Certified Athletic Trainer Preceptor may nominate ONLY ONE candidate for a scholarship award. The candidate is responsible for insuring that all four sections of the application (Student Application, Preceptor Recommendation, Academic Professor/Team Physician Recommendation, and the Program Director Academic Verification forms) are completed and submitted online. Any incomplete application will not be considered. Complete criteria for candidacy may be found below
The EATA Scholarship Committee will screen the candidates and announce its selections to the EATA membership at the annual meeting in January.
A maximum of two applicants from one Athletic Training Education Program may be selected as EATA scholarship recipients each year. Program Directors are encouraged to submit the two best qualified candidates for the award based on the listed criteria.
