The House of Delegates (HOD) is the policy making body of the APTA. It is a representative body of APTA membership. Attending the HOD will be a unique experience, as a student, to see how the professional association plans the direction of the profession. The delegates hear motions presented by the component chapters and sections, and elect new leaders to the APTA Board of Directors.
This scholarship covers a flight to the HOD and housing for your stay (max $1000). The scholarship recipient will receive mentorship from the Wisconsin delegation through attending meetings, house sessions, and collaborative time.
To apply: Please write a 500 word essay on the value of APTA membership in your student PT/PTA career.
The applications should be a Word document or PDF and sent to the Academic Liaison Committee co-Chairs, Erik Gregersen and Matt Paluchniak, (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org) by June 30. In the email also include full name, what school attending, year in school, APTA ID# and address.
The winner will be chosen by the Academic Liaison Committee and notified within two weeks of the application deadline.
