NBCOT Aspire Scholarship
The scholarship aims to support students who are preparing to take the NBCOT certification examination for occupational therapists (OTRs) or occupational therapy assistants (COTAs) by helping to cover the cost of the exam fees.
Applicants must be in their final term of an accredited OT or OTA program and have completed all fieldwork requirements. Additionally, applicants should be eligible to sit for the NBCOT certification exam.
The award amount covers the cost of the NBCOT certification examination fees for selected recipients.
The scholarship is awarded based on factors such as academic achievement, leadership, community service, financial need, and involvement in occupational therapy-related activities.
Applicants need to submit an application form, which typically includes personal information, academic history, a statement of financial need, and an essay discussing their commitment to the occupational therapy profession. Additional materials, such as letters of recommendation, a resume, or transcripts, may also be required.
The application deadline for the NBCOT Aspire Scholarship may vary each year. It is crucial to check the NBCOT website for the current deadline and submission instructions.
