APTA Centennial Scholars Program

Signup Deadline: 08-15-2020
Starts: 01-01-2021
Ends: 12-31-2021
Location: Online Opportunity


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 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 face-to-face meetings and regularly scheduled virtual learning experiences. Additionally, scholars will work directly with their sponsoring chapter/section/academy to design and complete a capstone project that addresses an existing need as determined by the sponsor. 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.


This is an exciting, once in a lifetime opportunity! If you are interested, download and complete the APTA Centennial Scholars Program Application and submit it to: ncpta@ncpt.org by August 15, 2020.
