IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Professional Degree Change

The NATA Board of Directors and the Commissioners of the CAATE, with the full support of the Board of Certification and the NATA Research & Education Foundation, have agreed to establish the professional degree in athletic training at the master’s level.

In order to ensure that the scholarship designations match the transition timeline the following changes will be implemented:

  • Spring 2024 will be the last year the NATA Foundation will award Undergraduate (non-senior and senior level) Scholarships
  • Beginning with the 2025 award cycle, the scholarship categories will be: Professional, Post Professional Masters and Doctoral. 
    • Students enrolled in a CAATE accredited undergraduate program or CAATE accredited professional masters program will be eligible to apply for a scholarship in the Professional Level Category.
