Athletic Training Awards & Scholarships

The Department of Sports Medicine bestows three awards each year.

The Croce Scholarship is given to an outstanding Freshman. The award is approximately $1000 and is based upon the financial performance of the $50,000 Endowment Fund created by Pat Croce.

The Weiss Scholarship is given to an outstanding junior or senior (with preference to those who have been at Swarthmore College). The award is about $500 and is funded by an Endowment created by the friends of Douglas Weiss, former Head Certified Athletic Trainer at Swarthmore College and long-time mentor of WCU Athletic Training Students.

Tonya Doyle, whom was a senior this past school year at Central Dauphin High School and acting as a student athletic trainer aide since her junior year, was the recipient of the National Athletic Trainers' Association Jack Cramer Scholarship. She was presented with a plaque and $2,000 scholarship in June at the Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers' Society Annual Symposium.

"I'm ecstatic to say that this scholarship is only given to one individual in the nation and Tonya was chosen as this years recipient...quite a feat! I wanted to share the e-letter below that Cramer Sports Medicine wrote on Tonya this month." Craig Kemmlein, MS, ATC, Athletic Trainer, Central Dauphin High School Link to Cramer article
