About the Scholarship
PBATS is currently accepting applications for the 2nd Annual Lewis A. Yocum Memorial Baseball Medicine Conference Scholarship program. The 2nd annual Baseball Medicine Conference will be held in Phoenix, Arizona from January 12th – 14th.
PBATS will be awarding nine athletic training students with a Dr. Lewis A. Yocum Baseball Medicine Conference Scholarship, which will be used to directly pay for the conference registration fee, a total cost of $450.
Students will be responsible for their own hotel and transportation costs. The registration fee will be paid directly to the Lewis A. Yocum Baseball Medicine Conference and not directly to the student.
Only those students willing and able to attend the Baseball Medicine Conference should apply. All students can visit the Baseball Medicine Conference website to register: http://baseballmedicineconference.com/
