The AMTAS President's Challenge was started in 2002 as a way for student music therapist to show our support for music therapy and to thank the professionals who have supported us in so many ways. The recipient must be a music therapist who is starting a music therapy program on a limited budget or with limited funds. We will support the recipient with donated musical items.
Check back soon for information about application deadlines.
Sponsored by the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) in cooperation with the Student Affairs Advisory Board.
