Massage Therapy School, Training and Scholarships

Massage Therapy School, Training and Imagine America Scholarships

The Imagine America Foundation is proud to offer career college and trade school scholarships for students pursuing a massage therapy school. Massage therapy is no exception to this rule. Why do we offer up to $1,000 for qualifying students to use toward their tuition at participating schools? Because we want to do everything we can to help students succeed.

Students choose massage therapy school for a number of reasons. If you love to work with your hands and want a career in health care or healing, this could be a great fit. Programs tend to be shorter than traditional degree programs, giving students a shorter path toward the job they want. This can also result in a much lower amount of student loan debt once the program is complete.

If you’re ready to narrow your search for the right program, simply use this listing to view schools in your area. Once you’re finished requesting information, download the Imagine America mobile app to start your scholarship application and see all the helpful tools and information we offer students!

Many students choose to become massage therapists because of the scheduling flexibility this job can provide. Since you can schedule your own appointments, it’s easier to manage your schedule around family responsibilities and personal interests. What’s more, you can seek work at salons, spas, resorts, hotels — or open your own practice.

Massage therapy careers by the numbers

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the field of massage therapy is expected to grow 20 percent between 2014 and 2024. This growth pace is more than three times the national average of 7 percent, just to give you some perspective about the promising opportunities for massage therapists.

The median wage in 2016 for massage therapists (also according to the BLS) was $46,910 per year. Of course, the amount you make will depend on where you live and other factors. When you reach out to schools in your area, be sure to ask which employers typically speak with their graduates.
