The AMTA-MA Chapter is a volunteer, member-driven association grounded in the promotion of education, legislative advocacy and consumer awareness. It is with these goals in mind that the Dianne Polseno Scholarship Award was developed.
Dianne Polseno made her life’s work about the ethical and educational advancement of the massage therapy profession. Dianne wrote a Q&A column on ethics for the AMTA’s Massage Therapy Journal, taught at the state and national level and was unwavering in her focus to improve the quality of massage.
The AMTA MA Chapter Dianne Polseno Scholarship award is offered to assist eligible students in completing their education to become massage therapists and for the advancement of their massage therapy career. There will be two recipients of the scholarship: 1st place: $1000.00 including a one-year AMTA Graduate Membership; 2nd place: $500 including a one-year AMTA Graduate Membership. A special thanks is given to our generous sponsor, Massage Envy, of our 1st place winner!
