The Mid-Atlantic Region is proud to offer a variety of supports in the form of scholarships, grants, and awards to its professional and student members.
Support for Student Members
Please see the details available on the Student Scholarships page.
Support for Professional Members
The MAR-AMTA believes strongly in our members and supports music therapists who reside in the Region and have financial constraints that limit their ability to join AMTA. The Region will provide one membership support award to cover the current cost of AMTA membership dues (currently valued at $250.00). Applications are anonymously reviewed and discretion is paramount throughout the application procedure.
To apply for the 2023 Membership Support Fund, music therapists must reside in the Mid-Atlantic Region and maintain their Board Certification from CBMT. The recipient of the MAR Membership Support Fund will be required to show proof membership once the award has been disbursed. The deadline for applications is December 15th, 2022 and notification of the award will be made by early 2023.
