Established in memory of Priscilla M. Clarkson, Ph.D., FACSM, the Priscilla M. Clarkson Student Travel Award will be awarded annually to an undergraduate student presenting at ACSM's Annual Meeting.  Dr. Clarkson was devoted to creating an exemplary undergraduate educational experience at a large, public university. 

In 2021, the American College of Sports Medicine Foundation will be offering one (1) Registration Award through the Priscilla Clarkson Memorial Fund. The purpose of the award is to advance education for one (1) undergraduate student by providing complimentary registration to present their scholarly work at ACSM’s 68th Annual Meeting June 1-5, 2021.

Award requirements include:

  1. Must be a Bachelor’s student in good standing at the time of submission of the abstract for ACSM's Annual Meeting and an ACSM member. 

  2. Abstract, based on research performed as an undergraduate, must have the applicant as the first author and have been accepted by the program committee for presentation at the Annual Meeting (e.g. free communication/slide, free communication/poster, clinical case study). As final Annual Meeting abstract selections may not be released by this date, interested candidates are encouraged to apply with their submitted abstract, and verification of acceptance will be made during the application review process.

  3. Must have a faculty sponsor, who must sign the application indicating that the student is in good standing and is responsible for the research abstract being presented. 

  4. A letter (no longer than one page) from the applicant describing: a) the importance of the research being presented; and b), how the research experience influences her/his future career.
