Committee Selection and Responsibilities
A committee of five members will be formed from physical therapy professionals including members of CEF, APTA members from surrounding counties who are familiar with and support the IACCC consortium, and former recipients of the scholarship.  Selection and replacement of these members will be coordinated by the IACCC ex-officio liaison.  Ideally, each member will serve for two years.

The committee responsibilities will include:

  • Individually review all applications received from programs.

  • Determine total score for each application based on point system devised by IACCC.

  • Meet with all committee members present to select recipients based on the combined total scores.         

  • Inform IACCC scholarship liaison of recipients selected

IACCC provides an ex-officio liaison to assist the committee in carrying out assigned responsibilities.  This person will not vote, nor will s/he enter into a debate of the selection process.
