The grants and contests are open to students and practitioners who “would you like to make a direct impact on the future of the massage therapy profession.”

“You may have an idea for a research study that could open up new treatment avenues or maybe you work with a community in desperate need of the benefits of massage,” wrote Jerrilyn Cambron, MTF president, in an email. “You might be a student who works with a client who presents excellent material for a case report, or perhaps you have a case that you would like to share by creating a poster to be considered for display at convention.”

The various grants and contests available for 2018 and the deadlines for application include:

Research Grants (maximum award US$30,000) – March 1, 2018


Community Service Grants (maximum award US$5,000) – April 2, 2018

Poster Abstract – April 2, 2018

Student Case Report Contest ¬– June 1, 2018

“We would love to hear your ideas and help you bring your unique contributions to the profession,” Cambron wrote.
