Scholarships for Occupational Therapy Majors

Occupational therapists help elderly, disabled or injured patients develop physical and cognitive skills in order to improve their confidence and quality of life. If you’re an occupational therapy major, though, you need to focus on educational expenses before you can focus on your patients. Scholarships for occupational therapy majors can help to cover the cost of your education, and you just might be eligible for one or more. Some are provided by professional organizations, such as the American Occupational Therapy Foundation, the Missouri Occupational Therapy Association and the Florida Occupational Therapy Association, while others are funded by individual schools, such as the University of Washington and the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Typically, students applying for these scholarships are only required to be accepted into an occupational therapy program in order to be considered, although in some cases eligibility is also determined by academic merit, financial need or community involvement. If you’d like to learn more about scholarships for occupational therapy majors, read on.
