group of peopleEach and every student accepted into the athletic training program receives a $6,500.00 athletic training scholarship that's paid over three years. Students are given $2,000.00 their sophomore and junior years and $2,500.00 their senior year.  Wilmington College acknowledges the fact that Athletics is greatly served through the clinical hours of AT majors.  With Wilmington's hands on approach, our athletes sports medicine needs are well served.  Were not selective about who gets the scholarship like some programs are.  Everyone in the program receives this awesome benefit.   We also encourage students to apply for financial aid.  Approximately 95% of our students receive some form of financial aid or scholarship from federal, state or Wilmington college resources. 

There are also many scholarship opportunities available to students through professional athletic training associations.  Each year our staff will assist eligible students with the application process for these specific scholarships.  Many of our students have received local, regional and national athletic training scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,500.  Listed below are the links to more information about specific AT scholarships.
