2022 Recipients of the Indiana State Erik Dalton Scholarship

The winners of the Erik Dalton Myoskeletal Massage Therapy Endowed Scholarship have been announced.

The successful collaboration between Indiana State University (Charlie Peebles) and Erik Dalton’s Freedom From Pain Institute (Erik Dalton) began in 2012 and was aptly named the Advanced Myoskeletal Massage Therapy program. This partnership has resulted in the only minor degree in massage therapy offered by a major United States university. Students from this program commonly enter into graduate school programs in Athletic Training, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant, or Osteopathic Medicine.

To elevate the status and continued growth of the Indiana State University program, Erik Dalton and the Freedom From Pain Institute finance an ongoing continuing education scholarship grant to help fund qualified and passionate students.

Each year they celebrate the recipients of the Erik Dalton Myoskeletal Massage Therapy Endowed Scholarship. This year the Freedom from Pain Institute is proud to feature two worthy recipients of the 2022 Erik Dalton Award Of Excellence Scholarship:

  • Kelsey Bowlds is a junior with a double major in massage therapy and applied medicine. She is a member of the track and field team at Indiana State University and is on track to attend graduate school and become a physical therapist. She says “Earning my massage therapy minor degree here at ISU was my favorite part of all my undergraduate curriculum!”
  • Hunter Morrison is currently a junior majoring in applied medicine with a concentration in pre-physician assistance and a minor in massage therapy.
