I have always had a passion for helping others, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to pursue my degree in massage therapy at SRTC. With this degree, I plan on becoming an integral part of my community by providing therapeutic massage services to those who need it. Massage therapy can be used as a form of stress relief and relaxation, but also has many more applications. It is an incredibly effective tool for pain management and injury rehabilitation. By having a comprehensive education from SRTC’s program, I will be able to provide high-quality care tailored specifically towards each individual’s needs.
I understand that college is expensive, and with the current economic climate making jobs scarce, affording tuition without help can be difficult if not impossible. For this reason, I am applying for the Foundation scholarship so that I may continue to pursue higher education at SRTC without adding financial strain onto myself or my family members. While obtaining certifications required for state licensure are essential in order to practice massage professionally, receiving an accredited degree from such a highly esteemed institution would give me much greater career opportunities in both private practice settings as well as larger medical facilities like hospitals or physical therapy offices. Having access to advanced courses such as Kinesiology & Pathology could open many doors that might otherwise remain closed due to lack of funds needed for educational materials or additional classes outside of the program’s standard curriculum structure.
