Diversity in Counseling Scholarship
Capella University is pleased to announce a $2,000 Diversity in Counseling Scholarship, which recognizes the value of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs in counselor education and in the counseling field.
The counselor education and family therapy programs in the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Capella University reflect our belief that a diverse learning community is critical to preparing future practitioners. An inclusive learning environment that values individual differences will prepare all students to better serve their clients and communities. The first step begins with investing in yourself.
The Diversity in Counseling Scholarship is designed to support students from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs who aspire to enhance counseling services in their communities. Because the communities we serve are vast, we value and seek to support all types of diversity through this scholarship. It is our vision for this scholarship to empower individuals from diverse backgrounds to pursue their academic goals and ultimately transform their communities through the services they provide. We will award this competitive $2,000 scholarship to up to 20 students who are enrolled in an eligible doctoral or master’s program in the GuidedPath learning format.
