IAHPERD sponsors a student/mentor program to stimulate the professional development of students and to increase student involvement in the association. Mentors are expected to support and guide the student during early affiliation with IAHPERD. Since first implemented in 1992, over 100 awards have been provided. The student receives $400 and the mentor receives $300. Students from high school and university, including both undergraduate and graduate students, have been recipients.
