- Scholarship Description
The NBCC Foundation is pleased to announce this year's rural scholarships for students pursuing a career in professional counseling. The rural scholarships were created to increase the number of counselors available to serve people in rural areas. These scholarships provide financial support to students who are currently enrolled in a Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP)-accredited counseling master’s program, live in a rural area, and commit to serve rural populations within one year of graduation for the duration of a minimum of at least two years post-graduation.
Up to five scholarships in the amount of $8,000 are available. Applicants must be enrolled, full time in a CACREP-accredited counseling master’s program and reside in a rural area as defined by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Applicants must be currently enrolled full time for the coming spring semester and be in good standing in a CACREP-accredited counseling master’s-level program, have taken courses during the current fall semester and may not have a pending status, deferred status, or other future start date for coursework.
