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 can nominate no more than one candidate for this award. The candidate is responsible for forwarding forms completed by the student, the team physician or an academic professor, the AT Education Program Director, and the AT/preceptor. Complete criteria for candidacy may be found below.
The Certified Athletic Trainer preceptor should see that all forms are completed (typed) and forwarded in one package with an official transcript of the candidate’s academic record to the Chair of the EATA Scholarship Committee at the address listed on the cover of this booklet.
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.
