GCCA Student Scholarship

GCCA values our student members, and we believe professional development opportunities are paramount to the development of a strong professional identity as a counselor. Because many conferences and workshops are out of reach for some students due to the cost of registration, travel, and accommodations, GCCA offers local students the possibility of supporting their registration and travel to the counseling conference of their choice. Both master’s and doctoral students may apply for reimbursement of costs for a workshop or conference related to the counseling profession by submitting an application and an essay describing the importance of conference and/or workshop attendance in the development of a strong counselor or counselor educator professional identity and how attending this particular conference will benefit them personally. All essays are blind-reviewed by the Scholarship Committee
