Summer scholarships available for preparation to be counselors

Some Kentucky schools and communities are experiencing a shortage of counselors that is projected to increase. To help meet the need, scholarship assistance is being offered by the Kentucky Counseling Association.

Those interested in becoming school counselors, and who already possess an undergraduate degree, can get a jump start this summer with help with tuition and textbooks. The association provides grants of $100 for textbooks.

Each of the participating universities, listed below, will provide one tuition waiver (preference will be granted to beginning master’s students who have earned less than 15 hours):

• Eastern Kentucky University

• Lindsey Wilson College • University of Louisville • Morehead State University

• Murray State University

• Western Kentucky University

• Xavier University.

Documentation of acceptance by the participating university and a letter of recommendation are required, along with a completed application. The deadline for submitting materials is April 15. Go to the Kentucky Counseling Association’s website at www.kyca.org for further information and an application. The application is available under KCA Summer 2008 Scholarship Application.
