MASSAGE Magazine has continued its partnership with a leading massage-education institute to offer scholarships totaling $8,000 to the institute’s students. Each entity donated $4,000 to this year’s scholarship fund.

Cortiva Institute is a family of massage-therapy schools with 10 locations nationwide.

There is no application deadline for the scholarship, according to Cortiva Vice President of Admissions Ted Havelka; rather, applications are continuously reviewed and scholarships awarded before the start of each class session.

In addition to the above-noted scholarships, Cortiva launched a new scholarship program in mid May. Called The Founder’s Scholarship, it will provide for $20,000 in scholarship funds to Cortiva students.
