The ATOM Scholarship and Awards Committees' main objective is to honor exemplary Certified and Student Athletic Trainers in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, for their valued service and accomplishments. The committee helps recognize the extraordinary contributions to the profession by ATs. We would also like to encourage athletic training students by offering two scholarships to assist them in their pursuit or their degree. The first annual scholarship was awarded at the state meeting in January 2001 and today we offer a $1,500 scholarship.
