Scholarship Opportunity

Scholarship Opportunity
  • Entries are currently being processed and the winner will be announced soon. –

I’ve done a number of professional qualifications and certifications and know first-hand how difficult it can be to balance the time, course material, and stay focused with everything else that’s going on in one’s life.

The last thing you want to worry about is the finances. But it’s unavoidable for most, unfortunately.

I was fortunate enough to have a scholarship for some of my studies, which is why it means a lot to me to offer some support to someone else in return.

I’m offering a scholarship of $500 to a student who is either studying in the health, massage, alternative medicine, or meditation fields – or just has a personal interest or passion in this areas.

It’s straightforward to apply, just read the requirements below and get writing.

I look forward to hearing from you, and good luck! (Check my Massage Therapy FAQ if you have any questions regarding massage therapy in general.)

For Your Massage Needs Scholarship Requirements

Applicants are to submit a 750+ word essay on any of the following topics:

  • Alternative/traditional medicines
  • Massage
  • Essential oils
  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Physical therapy
  • Anything similar to the above that may be of interest to my readers!

The above are general topics. Feel free to go in whatever direction you wish, be it personal experiences with any of the above topics, or your own ideas and theories.

I’m really just looking for a well-written piece of work that will be of interest to other, provoke discussion points and add value to the topics I am passionate about and write about on my blog.
