Colorado Springs, CO – The NSCA Foundation is pleased to announce two new scholarship opportunities beginning August 1, 2019 and running through October 15, 2019.
The Women’s Professional Development Scholarship is supported by the NSCA Women’s Committee. The scholarship is designed to support a female with an NSCA Professional membership pay for their National Conference Registration fee. Eligible applicants must identify as female, work currently in a strength and conditioning field, have a current NSCA Professional membership and complete all necessary requirements of the application. A minimum of one registration a year will be awarded.
To help students attend their first NSCA National Conference, the Vitalyon Foundation has created the Vitalyon Foundation Scholarship. Their mission is to inspire young adults to make informed decisions about their health, improve their athletic performance, and pursue careers in the health and wellness industry. The scholarship will provide NSCA National Conference attendance including registration, airfare, lodging, and meal per diem to one recipient annually (up to $2,500.) Eligible applicants must be NSCA members, have not attended a National Conference previously, and complete all necessary requirements of the application.
“We are honored to work with the NSCA Women’s Committee and the Vitalyon Foundation to announce these two new scholarships. The mission of both Scholarships reflects the importance of attending the NSCA’s annual conference,” says Dr. Matt Stock, NSCA Foundation Board President.
“The addition of two new donor-funded scholarships shows that NSCA members are committed to helping one another grow their knowledge and impact the profession,” says Carissa A. Gump, NSCA Foundation Executive Director. “We are truly grateful to the NSCA Women’s Committee and the Vitalyon Foundation for their dedication in advancing the strength and conditioning industry.”
