Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity for USA, Canada, and International massage therapy students to participate in a competition to develop their professional and research skills. Winners will receive monetary prizes of up to $2,500. Participating students will present their findings in the form of a professional case report.

The Massage Therapy Foundation offers the Student Case Report Contest to provide an opportunity for students to develop research skills and enhance their ability to provide evidence-informed massage to the public. Cash prizes are available to contest winners contingent on publication of the case report.

Case reports play an important role in scientific and professional literature. Writing a case report helps develop communication skills, critical thinking skills, and could contribute to future research and clinical practice. This contest fosters an opportunity for students to develop research skills by conducting their own research case report in which they will summarize their results in the format of a professional research paper. 

Students must report on independent clinical interventions on one client with guidance from a Case Report Supervisor and/or a Clinic Supervisor. This includes doing a literature review on the presenting condition or client goal; creating and implementing a treatment plan in accordance with the literature, the needs of the client, and the students’ expertise; writing up the results; discussing the implications of the outcomes; and offering suggestions for future study.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Massage Therapy Foundation’s Student Case Report Contest is open to students who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry and enrolled in a 500-hour minimum massage therapy program in the United States or abroad. Officers, directors, and employees of the Massage Therapy Foundation, its affiliates, agents, and its advertising and promotion agencies, and their respective immediate family members (spouse, children, parents, and siblings) and those living in the same household of each (whether or not related), are not eligible to enter.

Because a case report is on one client only a case series on multiple clients will not be accepted. Submissions of this type will not be scored by the reviewers.

If the submitted manuscript is determined to be a research study and not a case report it will not be considered for this contest.

Pre-Application Information:

2021 Submission Deadline is June 1, 2021.

The contest will accept applications year-round. Applications will be reviewed once per year. Students submitting a report must do so prior to their graduation date.

Awards will be announced by September 2021. Student winners will have until September 30th, 2022 to complete the peer review process with a scholarly journal and redeem their cash prize. Failure to have the Case Report accepted for peer review by a scholarly journal by the deadline will result in forfeiture of the cash prize portion of award.
