The NBCC Foundation is pleased to announce the military scholarships for service members, veterans, and their spouses pursuing a career in professional counseling. The military scholarship was created to increase the number of counselors available to serve military personnel and families.
These scholarships provide financial support to students who are currently enrolled in a Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP)-accredited, master’s-level counseling program; are active duty, have served in the military, or are a military spouse; and who commit to serve military personnel within one year of graduation for the duration of a minimum of at least two years post-graduation.
Five scholarships in the amount of $8,000 are available.
Applicants must be enrolled in a CACREP-accredited counseling master’s program, be veterans or active-duty U.S. military service members or spouses of a veteran or active-duty U.S. military service member. Veterans must have received an honorable discharge. Applicants must be currently enrolled and be in good standing in a CACREP-accredited counseling master’s-level program, have taken courses during the previous semester, may not have a pending status, deferred status, or other future start date for coursework. Applicants are expected to graduate three years from the date of the scholarship funding. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
