-       Current APTA/WPTA member

-       Graduating PT/PTA student in 2014 who will be working in Wisconsin next year

 

To apply write an essay, not exceeding 500 words, about a project you would like to work with the academic liaison committee on over the next year with the goal of increasing student involvement and/or understanding of the ATPA/WPTA.

 

Last year’s winner played an integral role in developing a student mentorship program for three students at the WPTA Fall Conference and one year long mentorship which matched students with individual members of the WPTA Board of Directors.

 

The essays are due Friday, May 2nd. The scholarship recipient will be chosen within two weeks of this deadline.
