Federal Advocacy Forum Scholarship
This scholarship is for two students to attend Federal Advocacy Forum Hill in Washington D.C., taking place from Sunday, March 31 through Tuesday, April 2, 2019. This is an AMAZING opportunity to join physical therapists and physical therapist assistants from across the country in a rally on Capitol Hill and in meetings with your representative in Congress to advocate for physical therapy. There will be a group of PT’s and students from Wisconsin attending - it is a delegation that is welcoming and incredibly supportive of students.
