2012 Student Scholarships
TNOTA also supports our states Occupational Therapy students through TNOTA Student Scholarships. The money used to fund these scholarships is derived from the Silent Auction held at the previous year’s TNOTA Annual Conference. Students currently enrolled in entry level OT or OTA programs in Tennessee and who are current members of TNOTA are eligible to apply. The selected student(s) will be named at the TNOTA State Conference (October 5 & 6, 2012).
