Creveling Awarded Travel Scholarship
Georgia Southern University Exercise Science graduate student Sarah Creveling has been awarded a 2021 American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) Student Travel Scholarship.
Funds received from the scholarship will be used toward reimbursement of travel, lodging and meal expenses up to $1000.00 for the AACPDM 75th Annual Meeting held October 6-9, 2021. The scholarship will also provide recipients with complimentary registration to the annual meeting.
“Being awarded this scholarship will reduce the cost of the conference as well as my travel expenses,” stated Creveling, who is looking forward to having the opportunity to network with and learn from experts in her field of interest.
To be considered for a scholarship, recipients had to be a full-time student or trainee, an AACPDM member or applicant, and be an author on an abstract submitted to the annual meeting.
Additionally, Creveling will be participating in the poster presentation portion of the annual meeting where she will be presenting two posters titled “Environmental Factors and their Relationship to Physical Activity and Sport among Children with Cerebral Palsy” and “Using Photovoice to Examine School-based Physical Therapists’ Perspectives of Functioning.”
After graduation, Creveling plans on pursuing a doctorate degree in public health and to continue working with individuals with disabilities.
