Many Faces. One Purpose.


The American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT) and the APTA Academy of Education are proud to support scholarship fundraising efforts for minority physical therapy students. This year, ELC supports these scholarship efforts through a t-shirt design contest. The contest theme is Many Faces. One Purpose. The theme showcases the many backgrounds of physical therapy education professionals, all working toward the same purpose of providing quality care and advancing the community.  

The funds raised in this contest will be distributed to the American Academy of Physical Therapy, the National Association of Black Physical Therapy, and the APTA Physical Therapy Minority Scholarship Fund. These organizations provide scholarships to diverse populations.

The winner of the contest will receive $500.00 USD.

Stay tuned for the announcement of the ELC t-shirt design contest winner!
