The AMHCA Foundation is pleased to announce the new Student Travel Award Scholarship. The 2012 scholarship recognizes an outstanding graduate student in clinical mental health counseling and awards a $1,000 travel grant to attend the 2012 AMHCA Annual Conference in Orlando, July 19–21, 2012. 

“This scholarship provides a great opportunity for a graduate student to build connections in our field and benefit from outstanding education,” said Sharon Cyrus–Savory, AMHCA Foundation scholarship award chair (and a former GSC chair).

The AMHCA Foundation is committed to improving mental health through education and public awareness campaigns, scholarship awards, and support of mental health research. An important goal of the Foundation is to promote the development of graduate students in mental health counseling through scholarships and awards.

Any graduate student enrolled in an accredited counseling program is eligible to apply for the scholarship. Applicants must complete the application form and submit the supporting materials, which include an essay, a curriculum vita, and a letter of recommendation from a program faculty member.
