District 8 Student Scholarship Application

DUE DATE: February 2nd 2018

 

The FWATA Scholarships Committee has developed a new application process for District 8 athletic training students different from past years. *Please note that submitting an application for an undergraduate or graduate scholarship through the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA Research & Education Foundation) NO LONGER automatically places the applicant eligible for a FWATA scholarship. The student applicant must now submit separate applications for a FWATA ($1,500 award) and NATA ($2,300 award) scholarship.

 

The Far West Athletic Trainers’ Association currently sponsors ten scholarships to support student membership available to athletic training students within District 8. Recipients of each scholarship receive a $1500.00 monetary award and a plaque. An additional certificate is also presented to the nominating certified athletic trainer of each scholarship recipient. All of the awards are given in order to continue promoting the education and profession of athletic training, as well as recognize some of the outstanding students who represent the future of the Athletic Training profession. Three of the current scholarships are given in memory of individuals who contributed greatly to the growth and success of the profession of Athletic Training.
