Since 1988, our Minority Scholarship Fund has acknowledged and rewarded hundreds of deserving students and faculty for their academic excellence, superior achievement, professionalism, and outstanding participation in minority affairs activities and services. Learn more about the awards.
The goal of the annual Celebration of Diversity is to significantly increase the Minority Scholarship Fund so that more scholarships in more significant amounts may be awarded. Contributions to the Minority Scholarship Fund are tax deductible as the Fund is contained within the 501(c)(3) Physical Therapy Fund, which is supported by APTA.
