The NBCC Foundation is pleased to announce the 2010 scholarships available for students pursuing a career in professional counseling. The scholarship program is an integral component of the NBCC Foundation’s mission to promote mental health through professional counseling and credentialing. The goal of the scholarships is to increase the number of counselors in underserved areas.
The military scholarship provides financial support to service members and veterans who are currently enrolled in counseling programs and who commit to serve military personnel upon graduation. Similarly, the rural scholarship provides financial support to students who are currently enrolled in counseling programs and who commit to serving rural or underserved areas upon graduation.
Both scholarships are in the amount of $3,000 and five of each are available. Recent military experience is required for the military scholarship, and residence in a rural area is a requirement for the rural scholarship. The deadline for applications is November 1, 2010.
