New Scholarship Fund Established for Black or Other Minority Graduate Students in Sports Medicine

John A. Mayes, director of athletic training and sports medicine at Prairie View A&M University in Texas, has established a scholarship fund through the National Athletic Trainers Association. The endowment will provide a scholarship for a black or minority entry-level graduate student in athletic training or sports medicine.

The donation establishing the scholarship fund is the largest individual contribution made to the NATA since its founding in 1991.
