Congrats to 2022 Minority Fellowship Program Fellows!


The NBCC Foundation is pleased to announce the 2022 fellowship recipients for the National Board for Certified Counselors Minority Fellowship Program (MFP). One hundred and thirteen fellows were selected from over 540 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.

Because of additional funding granted to the NBCC Foundation, this year’s cohorts total 113 fellows, 23 more than previous years. This marks the largest year of MFP fellows since NBCC was awarded the MFP grant in 2012. Since NBCC began the counseling MFP with the first cohort in 2013, there have been 792 MFP counseling fellows awarded and a total of over $10.8 million invested in the educational support, training, and development of mental health counselors, addictions counselors, and counselor educators.

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 2022 MFP Fellows!
