Two educational scholarships—one for $1,000 and one for $500—will be awarded at the end of June to two massage students, by Massage Without Borders, an organization that raises and distributes funds to massage therapists in need of assistance.

All eligibility requirements are listed on the website, The application deadline is June 15.

The scholarships will be funded in part by fundraising taking part nationwide during the month of May. (See “Events Planned Nationwide to Raise Funds for Massage Therapists.”)

Massage Without Borders’ founder, Gloria Coppola, says the organizations’ leaders intend to award a $2,000 educational scholarship in the fall.
