I [Danny Pettry] highly recommend for college students in RT/TR degree programs to apply for the Peg Connolly Scholarship.
The winners get to attend ATRA’s national conference for free and get to monitor sessions.
You’ll meet a lot of people in the field.
It is named in honor of Dr. Peg Connolly (first President of ATRA) and former Executive Director at NCTRC.
I had won the 2004 Peg Connolly Scholarship (Kansas City, Missouri). It was the 20th anniversary of ATRA. I assisted with training the Peg Connolly Scholarship winners for the 2009 ATRA conference in Kansas City.
I’ve assisted with the scholarship selection committee for several years. I won’t be reading essays for students in 2018.
