The purpose of the program is to mentor and retain underrepresented racial/ethnic minority members by offering three different program levels. Program participation requires ACSM membership; involvement in ACSM meetings (regional and national) and committees; and pursuit of ACSM professional presentations, publications and fellowship. The program also provides mentors to participants at each level and provides participants with funding to perform the necessary steps to remain involved with ACSM from student member to ACSM Fellowship. For more information on the program.
