“I am so honored to be selected as one of this year’s lucky recipients. The money from the scholarship will help to pay for part of my tuition, invest in new instruments, and cover some basic living costs. This scholarship gives me a break from worrying about my finances so I can really focus on school and grow into the future music therapist I want to be for my community. It’s great to know there are people like George who believe in our field and recognize the important role that music therapists play in health and well-being. Thank you so much, George and the Canadian Music Therapy Fund!”

“I have experienced the benefits of music therapy. I aim to be a role model for future generations of disabled youth to finally see someone who walks like them, talks like them, and plays guitar like them become a certified music therapist.”
