“These outstanding students were awarded 4 of the 63 available national awards,” says James Scifers, chair of Moravian’s department of rehabilitation sciences, “which means Moravian College students captured the most national scholarships of any program in the country!”
Scifers notes that other programs receiving two or more scholarships include some of the top programs in graduate athletic training education in the nation:
University of South Carolina (3)
University of Kentucky (2)
University of Idaho (2)
Quinnipiac University (2)
West Chester University (2)
AT Still University (2)
Rocky Mountain University of Health Sciences (2).
The NATA Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association and one of the organization’s most highly regarded programs. From 50 to 75 scholarships are awarded annually.
