The NBCC Foundation is pleased to announce the 2021 fellowship recipients for the National Board for Certified Counselors Minority Fellowship Program (MFP). Ninety fellows were selected from over 450 applicants to represent three cohorts of fellows: master’s-level mental health counseling, doctoral-level mental health counseling, and master's-level addictions counseling.
The goals of the program are to strengthen the infrastructure that engages diverse individuals in counseling and increase the number of professional counselors providing effective, culturally competent services to underserved and never-served populations. Each fellow will receive funds to support their education as well as training, mentorship, and professional development services.
The NBCC MFP is made possible by a grant awarded to the NBCC Foundation by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and the NBCC Foundation also collaborates with NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, to administer the addictions counseling fellowship program.
Congratulations to our 2021 MFP Fellows!
