For the third year running, a Capilano University Music Therapy student has won the Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund Scholarship.
Supriya Crocker learned earlier this year that she was the winner of the $2,500 award, which is given on the basis of leadership, academic excellence, innovation and creativity. The new mother is in her fourth year of the program at Cap and will be completing her internship next year at the G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver.
The Trust Fund offers this annual scholarship to the top fourth year student studying Music Therapy in any of the six Canada programs. Its selection committee was impressed with Supriya’s application and noted that the calibre of applications for the scholarship this year was particularly high.
Supriya was excited to apply for this award and used her background (bachelor of biological sciences), along with her extensive learning in the Bachelor of Music Therapy program, to put forward an excellent submission.
Last year, Capilano Music Therapy student, Mara Sawchyn, won the Trust Fund Scholarship, and the year before, Sheila Harry, another Capilano Music Therapy student, received the award.
