Theodore Meyer Scholarship Deadline Approaching!

Theodore Meyer Scholarship

Please see www.musictherapy.org/careers/scholars for application instructions.

(*Undergraduate Students, Undergraduate Student Interns, & Undergraduate Equivalency Students are eligible to apply for this award. Graduate Students are NOT eligible to apply for this award. )

Theodore Michael Meyer (August 9, 1982 - January 17, 2013) was a music lover and a student of guitar. He started playing guitar when he was a young teenager in Raleigh, NC and spent much of his free time 'jamming' with friends and playing gigs at local venues. In 2007, Theo received his Bachelor's Degree in Music Composition from the College of Charleston in South Carolina. Due to a biking accident, Theo suffered from chronic pain throughout most of his 20s. Theo benefited from Music Therapy as part of his treatment and considered going back to school to study Music Therapy to help others. Theo's family hopes that this scholarship will go to a student interested in helping individuals with mental health and/or addiction issues find a path to wellness and inspiration through the joy of music.

Award: One cash scholarship of $1000 will be available each year


Requirements: Students will provide two (2) short essays: one essay detailing their interest in mental health and addiction and a second essay describing their long-term professional goals. Each application narrative should be a maximum of two (2) pages.


A final written report is required and must be submitted to AMTA within 60 days of the end of the award period. The report will include a summary of the anticipated impact this scholarship will have on the recipient's career. Winners will also be required to submit a handwritten thank you note to the Meyer family within this timeframe.

Application Deadline: All entries must be received by 6:00 pm EST April 1, 2016 without exception.
