Since its inaugural class of 2000, either Belmont University School of Physical Therapy’s third year students and/or second year students have been the recipients of PT Clinical Scholarship awards. These awards have been provided by an anonymous donor with the intent to assist in defraying the additional costs incurred during the final 8-week full time clinical experiences. With the $5000.00 offered again this year, the total amount to date that has been awarded to PT students is $114,000.00.
At the request of the donor, a committee selected third year students based on their campus and community involvement, high academic achievements and need. Each applicant provided a one-page resume’ and one-page essay indicating why they chose the physical therapy program at Belmont University and explained their need for financial assistance.
This year's scholarship recipients are Sarahann Callaway, Brittany Colston, John Hackett, Sarah Herschberger, Lauren LaCourse, Natalie Neufelder, Michelle Perna, Teela Sexton, and Allie Sosebee.
