Scholarships

Athletic Training Student Scholarships are available through the Sports Medicine Department within the Department of Athletics. Scholarships are awarded to athletic training students to help offset the cost of tuition and other school-related expenses. 

Students are rewarded for service to the athletic teams that goes above and beyond what is required to meet ATEP requirements for clinical rotations. This includes team coverage that may be necessary before the start or finish of the semester and into holidays or scheduled academic breaks. Students may also be asked on occasion to perform the services as a First Responder in the absence of the direct supervision of a licensed certified athletic trainer.

Eligibility Requirements

The Sports Medicine Program offers scholarship awards to junior and senior athletic training students who are fully admitted to the Athletic Training Education Program.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  1. Currently be enrolled and fully accepted in the Athletic Training Education Program at Liberty University;
  2. Maintain current certification in CPR/AED training at all times;
  3. Have earned a minimum of a 2.5 overall GPA;
  4. Have a clear/resolved athletic training disciplinary record from the previous semester as determined by the ACI and Head Athletic Trainer;
  5. Plan to pursue a career in athletic training or other sports medicine-related area.
