Scholarships Descriptions

~Barbara Fleischmann Award of Excellence Scholarship The E & E Davis Foundation donates to NCCAP each year a varied amount to be utilized to recognize excellence in the field of activities in honor of their daughter, fellow activity professional Barbara Fleischmann, ACC/NHA, and MEPAP Instructor.

~Madge Schweinsberg Scholarship Madge, formerly a teacher and interior decorator, was offered the position as an activity director by her brother, a nursing home administrator. With her strong background in art and teaching, and her love of music, he knew she would make an outstanding activity director, a job she did with great expertise and enthusiasm for approximately twenty years. Having no experience in nursing homes, Madge recognized the need for activity directors to have more education in order to do their jobs effectively. Because there was a lack of information on activities as a profession, she helped organize the Activity Therapists Association, which led to Illinois Activity Professionals Association, and eventually the National Association of Activity Professionals.. She was instrumental in establishing NCCAP and served as the first reviewer for professional certification. Madge was a true visionary in the field of activities and her influence is still felt more than thirty years later. There are two $245 scholarships available to attend the annual NCCAP Symposium.

~Beverly Morris Scholarship This scholarship was developed in honor of the first certified activity professional (ADC) in New York State in 1986. This scholarship will provide monetary assistance toward registration costs for a certified activity professional to attend a conference/convention, seminar/workshop or a course that is related to the activity profession.

~ MEPAP Course Scholarships are available if you need assistance with payment for a MEPAP course there are instructors who have graciously volunteered to donate a class. Contact the instructor directly by clicking here MEPAP Instructors.
