BECOME AN APTA CENTENNIAL SCHOLAR! APPLY TODAY - Deadline is Sept. 31
The APTA Centennial Scholars Program is designed to build a cadre of future association leaders at both the chapter/section/academy and national levels. Demonstrating APTA’s investment in the sustainability of the association as it begins its next 100 years, the program will support our collective quest for a diverse and prepared leadership pool.
The 12-month program will run throughout 2021 with a goal of engaging 100 scholars, including the goal of at least one scholar sponsored by each of APTA’s chapters, sections, and academies. The curriculum will cover association leadership and management topics and be delivered through three live events and regularly scheduled virtual learning experiences. Additionally, scholars will work directly with OPTA to identify and complete a capstone project that addresses an existing need in our state. Scholars will also benefit from the guidance of Centennial Scholar mentors who will work directly with the scholars in small groups to support the completion of their projects.
