AMTA Announces Recipient of $5,000 Student Scholarship

The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) has awarded its first $5,000 Massage Therapy Student Scholarship to Tamra Gallo of Illinois.  Tamra is a recent graduate of the massage therapy program at Elgin Community College and received the scholarship because of the quality and content of the essay she submitted for the award.


AMTA congratulates Tamra and the Elgin Community College for their commitment to quality massage therapy education and practice.  She was presented with her scholarship check by AMTA Executive Director Bill Brown today in the company of her teachers.


AMTA will open the entry period for its next $5,000 student scholarship at its national convention in Ft. Worth, Texas between September 25 and 28.  These scholarships are intended to reward massage therapy students who demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the massage therapy profession.


The American Massage Therapy Association is the largest non-profit, professional association serving massage therapists, massage students and massage schools.  The association is directed by volunteer leadership and fosters ongoing, direct member-involvement through its 51 chapters.  AMTA works to advance the profession through ethics and standards, the promotion of fair and consistent licensing of massage therapists in all states, and public education on the benefits of massage.
