The AMTAS President’s Challenge was started as a way for music therapy students to show support for the field and to thank the professionals who have shown support for the students throughout the years. We are looking for an MT-BC who is starting a music therapy practice/program or running a practice/program on a limited budget, to apply for the scholarship. Useful items, such as books, CD's, or small musical instruments, will be awarded to the winner of the President’s Challenge to help them start a music therapy practice/program or to supplement a current practice/program.
