NAAP is proud to announce that there have been three Diversity Advancement Scholarships awarded! The intent of this scholarship is to create interest and awareness of Therapeutic Activity Services with people of color and other minorities by providing financial support for education in activity services, therapeutic recreation, geriatrics and other related fields. Scholarships range from $100.00 to $1000.00 for specific courses that will assist the professional with enhancing their career.
The scholarships were awarded to Annebelle Mead of South Carolina, Kim Hosey of Mississippi, and Priscilla Royal-Frazier of Georgia. Each received assistance to attend courses per their individual needs.
I want to thank and acknowledge the Cultural Committee members: Pam Hayle, Lynne Jensen and Vanessa Emm. These ladies did a fantastic job in creating the objectives and policies, then completing all their various tasks to create a strong program. If you have interests in joining the committee, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The scholarships are financially supported by donations, If you would like to donate to this scholarship fund, please contact the NAAP office.
The next scholarship will be offered in January 2022.
