Founded in 2007 with the aim of supporting the advancement of strength and conditioning practical applications, the NSCA Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing funding to NSCA members taking part in educational and research endeavors. The NSCA Foundation has awarded over 156 grants and 455 scholarships totaling more than $2 million to outstanding individuals within the strength and conditioning community.
Maddie (Madeline) Armstrong received an NSCA Foundation High School scholarship. Today, she is finishing her freshman year at East Stroudsburg University, an NSCA Education Recognition Program school. As an Exercise Science major, Maddie has maintained a 3.846 GPA and is the only freshman to participate in observing the school's Sports Science Institute. She writes:
The NSCA Foundation would not exist if not for the generous contributions of the NSCA community. While the Foundation is determined to assist as many applicants as possible, every year the list of exceptional applicants grows longer and we can not fund everyone.
We hope that today, driven by your passion, you will partner with us and consider shaping the future of strength and conditioning through a financial gift of support. Every gift, regardless the size goes directly to supporting the Foundation programs, not overhead costs.
Those wishing to make a donation of $200 or more will join our Partners of Excellence Program.
