Kent Scriber AT Fund
The Kent Scriber Athletic Training Fund (KSF) was created in 2014 to help fund extra curricular programming and extra academic initiatives, professional growth and education of students, staff and faculty, and student and faculty research projects that can not be covered with normal operating expenses within the Athletic Training Education Program. The KSF funds student research and attendance at professional conferences like NYSATA, EATA and NATA, helps us bring in professional guest speakers to advance our knowledge of current issues in the field, and supports extra curricular programming, like events and activities for the EquAT and InclusivAT initiative, started in 2016-17.
In 2017, we started the Emerging Clinical Scholar Grant program to help support and advance the research interests and clinical skill sets of high achieving athletic training majors.To date, the KSF has awarded funding to senior athletic training majors in order for them to attend a nationally renowned sport concussion conference in Chapel Hill, North Carolina (spring 2017), a public health forum in Brussels, Belgium, and a Baseball Injuries course in Phoenix, AZ (both, winter 2018).
The KSF is funded through the generous donations of alumni, students, faculty and program supporters, student led fundraising efforts and via the Kent Scriber Advanced Clinical Update Series, an annual BOC approved EBM continuing education course offered for certified athletic trainers by the faculty and students of the program.
