Massage Therapy Scholarship Still Open

Students looking for help paying for massage therapy school still have time to apply for a spa-related scholarship fund.

The Mary Tabacchi Scholarship is worth $2,500 from the International Spa Association for students who want to work in a spa.

To qualify for the scholarship, massage therapy and spa-related students must be in an undergraduate school and have completed at least one year at college. They must also have an interest in spa management and a 2.75 GPA.

The International Spa Association is a professional organization that is focused on bettering their industry through assisting students of massage therapy and other related industries including physicians, nutritionalists, and wellness professionals. The scholarship is available from the ISPA Foundation to a student of any related discipline as long as they have demonstrated an intention to go into management.

Successful massage therapy schools and students interested in managing a spa will be well-prepared to meet the growing need of the health industry, which has proven to tap into many other industries in recent years. Facilities are renovating everything from their physical buildings to their treatment and prevention programs. Virtually all industries stand to gain from the changes in the health field.

The scholarship was created to honor one of the first spa-specific teachers in the industry, Mary Tabacchi. One lucky student will be notified of their scholarship award in May and will also be treated to airfare and paid accommodation to an International Spa Association conference.

The last ISPA conference focused on quality education and one of the topics to help kick-off the conference was instruction in how massage therapy clinics can help spas gain access to medical clients. As part of the spa agenda, massage therapy is a unique way in which spas can become involved in this aspect of the health and wellness industries. Massage therapy schools have also focused on an ever-growing health industry in recent years.
