The APTA Centennial Scholars Program is designed to build a cadre of 100 future association leaders at both the component and national levels. The 12-month program will run throughout 2021 with a goal of engaging 100 scholars from each of the 71 APTA components. The Centennial Scholars curriculum will cover association leadership and management topics and be delivered through three face-to-face meetings and regularly scheduled virtual learning experiences during 2021. Additionally, each scholar will work directly with their sponsoring component to design and complete a capstone project that addresses an existing need as determined by that component.
Each scholar will have the guidance of a mentor who will work directly with up to four scholars to support the completion of their projects and provide guidance throughout the curriculum.
More information about the program, including scholar eligibility and selection criteria, guidelines for the capstone projects, and an outline of the program curriculum, is available here.Time Commitment:
