2018 Scholarship Recipient 


“The first allotment of the George Stroumboulopoulos Music Therapy Scholarship was an incredible gift. The funds went towards my tuition, as well as purchasing instruments which I used during my placement at a seniors home. I feel that as a music therapist, instruments are a long term investment, and you can never own too many. I will continue to use these instruments during my placements this upcoming year. I am really looking forward to receiving the second allotment during my 1000 hour internship. I am also so excited to hear that another student will be given this same opportunity.


Most importantly, this scholarship is a huge symbol of support for the field, acknowledging the value in music therapy. Thank you once again to George and to the Canadian Music Therapy Fund.”
