AMTA Invites Applications for Bob King Massage Therapy Student Scholarship

The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) encourages massage therapy school students to apply for the $5,000 Bob King AMTA Student Scholarship to be awarded in January 2014. To participate in the scholarship essay contest, students need to make their submission online by December 9, 2013. 


This scholarship, named after the late-Bob King, challenges massage school students to strive for excellence in their study of massage therapy and be rewarded for their devotion to the profession.  To apply, the student must be admitted to or enrolled in a minimum 500-hour entry-level massage therapy program at the time of application.  They need to submit a 500 word essay on why they have chosen to become a massage therapist; their plans for their massage therapy career; and how they plan to advance their career, while giving back to the 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.
