• Angelina's Song

2022 Music Therapy Scholarship Deadline: May 31



Angelina's Song strives to inspire others through the Power of Music. As a nonprofit, we provide grants to children's hospitals to support music therapy programs and annually contribute to the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation for research. Our foundation raises awareness for pediatric cancer, research, and is an advocate for music therapy programming for pediatric cancer patients. If we cannot cure pediatric cancer today, we can at least make a difference in the lives of those who suffer from it.


Angelina's Song Foundation's Music Therapy Scholarship was established in 2020 to provide support to students pursuing a course of study in Music Therapy at a approved AMTA Music Therapy school:

  • Drexel University

  • Duquesne University

  • Elizabethtown College

  • Immaculata University

  • Marywood University

  • Mercyhurst University

  • Seton Hall University

  • Slippery Rock University

  • Temple University

  • West Chester University of Pennsylvania

Funds will be paid directly to the school to be applied to tuition and expenses. All recipients can apply to renew their scholarship for up to four consecutive years of Music Therapy studies at an approved school. Renewal is dependent on sustained GPA and updated essay and letter requirements. The Foundation intends to offer a scholarship each year to a First-Time Applicant while accepting renewals for past recipients who qualify. First-Time Applicants can be starting any year of study — Freshman through Senior. Scholarship funds will be awarded to the student upon evidence of registration in an AMTA approved, accredited higher educational institution.
