Through the use of focused fundraising and donations, the Occupational Therapy Association of Oregon strives to support our OT/OTA practitioners and students. Each year, Occupational Therapy Association of Oregon (OTAO) presents different types of scholarships to students accepted to/enrolled in, an occupational therapy or occupational therapy assistant program. We also support our OT practitioners. The amount available is based on donations received, dedicated fundraising activities throughout the year, and funds raised by the annual Scholarship Silent/Live Auction held the previous year at the OTAO Annual Conference. Applicants for our scholarships must be members of OTAO.
This year, we are presenting 10 full-conference scholarships to attend this year’s annual conference.
