CECP Students Win Scholarships

Released: 3/2/2016


Three Masters’ students in the Counselor Education Counseling Psychology department were awarded scholarships from the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC): Stephanie Hood, Daniel Lattimore and Devonna Johnson. All NBCC scholarships are awarded to students who are committed to work with underserved, diverse populations. The scholarship Stephanie received is specific to addictions counseling, while Daniel and Devonna’s scholarships target work with clients who are 16-25 years old.

In 2015, the NBCC Foundation granted scholarships to 68 master’s-level scholars, including two students from Marquette University. Students will not only receive the financial assistance, but they will also attend a symposium in Washington, D.C., this May to network with other recipients and alumni.

Dr. Jennifer Cook, an alumna of the NBCC Doctoral Fellows program, says “Students who earn scholarships from NBCC receive significant funds to help them financially during their graduate education, yet they gain so much more. NBCC scholars receive mentorship and professional development, as well as the opportunity to develop relationships with other scholars who share their passion for working with underserved communities. The NBCC foundation’s commitment to providing funds for students to continue their education so they can work with diverse, underserved populations exposes the need for more counselors in this area, and further validates scholars’ dedication to their career path that integrates social justice advocacy.”
