Description
Colorado Scholarships

Thanks to a grant from The Colorado Trust, the NBCC Foundation is expanding the number of rural scholarships we award to Colorado students. These scholarships provide financial support to students who are currently enrolled in a qualifying master’s-level counseling program in the state of Colorado and who commit to serving priority underserved communities.

The rural scholarship was created to develop more counseling services in rural communities, which suffer disproportionately from a lack of mental health care. This scholarship is awarded to counseling students who commit to practicing in rural areas upon graduation.

This scholarship provides $5,000 in financial support for a master’s-level counseling student in Colorado who has substantial experience with rural communities and commits to serving this underserved population for two years after graduation.
