North Carolina Student Majors Association

NCSMA Mission

The Student Majors Association seeks to provide enrichment opportunities for leadership, networking, fellowship, research, and scholarship for undergraduate students preparing for an AHPERD-SM career.

Annual Leadership Retreat

The NCAAHPERD-SM Student Majors Association Leadership Workshop is an opportunity for our student members to learn how to be leaders in their respective fields, at their respective schools, and in the organization. This is a great opportunity to improve your leadership skills and learn more about being a professional.

Awards and Scholarships

 Student Majors awards and scholarships are presented at the NCAAHPERD-SM Convention in November! Come and join us as we honor our award winners! We are very proud of them, and we know you will be too!

Nominations and applications for Student Majors awards and scholarships are accepted at all times of the year, however, the deadline is July 1 of the current year. Nominations or applications made after that date will be considered for the following year.

NCAAHPERD-SM annually awards five $1,000 dollar scholarships to students majoring in the fields of health, physical education, recreation, sports management, or dance. Three of the scholarships are awarded to undergraduate students and two are awarded to a student entering or attending a graduate school in North Carolina.
