  1. Why do you want to be a Massage Therapist?

The New York Institute of Massage reserves the right to offer NYIM Scholarships at its discretion. NYIM Scholarships have no cash value and are being offered to first time enrollees only. Students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress as outlined in NYIM Policies and Procedures.

Additional Scholarship Opportunities

We believe that no student should be denied education due to lack of funding. Scholarships for books, the school supply package, and tuition reduction are available to those who qualify. There are other scholarships also available from partners in education. A few of those (but not limited to) are as follows:

The AMTA has several opportunities where you have a chance to win a scholarship to help pay for tuition. Check out the website for the rules and to see when these opportunities run.

The Spa Foundation
Students pursuing a degree in massage therapy self-help and financial management resources may qualify for awards from this foundation.
Grants and scholarships are the most desirable types of funding you can receive to pay for your college education since they don’t need to be repaid. While any amount of free money will be competitive, especially in a tough economic climate, the sooner and more often you apply the more luck you’ll have.
The link above contains all the information you will need to apply for specific scholarships. You should find funding opportunities for a host of career and educational experiences. These include majors such as nursing, elementary education, law, information science, communications, journalism, theology, and many more.
