Massage Therapy Information Night

Online resources are great for massage therapists, but there's nothing like exploring your options live and in-person. That's why Massage Therapy Information Night at National University is so special.  You can meet others just like you, who are interested in massage therapy. You can talk to massage instructors who've had years of real world experience.  You can ask questions, tour our campus, and see what studying massage therapy in a health science university is really like. 

After all, massage is one profession where ultimately the most important things take place live and in-person.  In our digital world, the healing touch of a real person "here and now," through massage therapy, is so nurturing to people. Likewise, meeting and talking to real massage therapists is often the best way to learn about the career.

New Scholarship for Massage Therapy Students

On February 8th, 2013, the American Massage Therapy Association announced a new $5000 scholarship available for a massage therapy student.  Applications are due May 31st, 2013, and the scholarship recipient will be announced on September 10, 2013. 

You are eligible for consideration if you are currently enrolled or admitted into a 500-hour entry-level massage therapy program at the time you apply. The application also includes a 500-word essay requirement. 

Since you can only apply for this scholarship with proof of admission, it's important you start your NUHS application process now. If you are considering applying to one of National University's massage therapy programs, we can usually let you know if you are admitted about one-month after you apply and submit all the necessary materials. Even if you plan to start your program later in the year, you can still apply now. 

Once you are admitted or enrolled, you can apply for the AMTA massage therapy scholarship online.
