April 25, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- A Western Michigan University graduate student has been awarded the Birmingham Musicale Music Therapy Scholarship.

Karen Kwok of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, the daughter of Wai Ling and Cheuk Lam Kwok, will use the scholarship to begin a six-month internship in music therapy at Orchard Manor, a senior care facility in Wisconsin, at the end of the spring semester. Kwok will then return to WMU to complete requirements for a master's in music therapy degree.

The scholarship, funded by the Birmingham Musicale chapter of the Michigan Federation of Music Clubs Inc., provides $600 to support advanced undergraduate or graduate students majoring in music therapy at a Michigan university.
