All students in the New England region are eligible for these scholarships. The scholarships are designed to highlight professional and academic excellence in undergraduate (Robert S. Axtell Undergraduate Scholarship), masters (Mark Connolly Memorial Masters Scholarship), and doctoral (David N. Camaione Doctoral Scholarship) students in our region. Students can also apply for the Lawrence E. Armstrong Minority Scholarship and the Donna Murphy Service Scholarship. University faculty are asked to encourage qualifying students to apply for these scholarships.
The New England Regional Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine is proud to announce that applications for the 2017 Undergraduate Research Experience Grants are now being accepted. Applications will be accepted until March 15, 2017, and all students who attend non-Tier 1 research institutions in the New England region are eligible for this scholarship.
This scholarship is designed to highlight professional and academic excellence in undergraduate students at institutions in our region that have a strong emphasis on teaching but do not have the resources to support research endeavors. The scholarship can be used to help fund either research or expenses associated with presenting the research at the annual NEACSM conference. Please encourage students at your college/university to apply for this scholarship.
The criteria for this scholarship is outlined in the attached document. Scholarship winners will receive an award of $500 and will be recognized at the annual meeting in October 2017.
Please note that the NEACSM Cover Form, which is attached, must accompany all applications. In addition, completed applications must be received in the NEACSM Office by March 15, 2017. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered. Also, note that this call is only for the Undergraduate Research Experience Grants and a future notification will take place for our other scholarships and awards in March.
This new program aims to support a reciprocal relationship between undergraduate NEACSM student mentees and professional NEACSM member mentors. Mentees will be exposed to networking and leadership opportunities within NEACSM and ACSM. The program will provide mentors with leadership and career-building opportunities. In addition to these benfits, mentors and mentees will receive complimentary registration to the Spring and Fall NEACSM meetings.
