Scholarships

The Rehabilitation Counseling Program has a successful history of obtaining grant funded scholarship programs for persons seeking a master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling.  Recent grants have been funded by the U.S. Department of Education Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) and have emphasized rehabilitation in rural areas, psychiatric rehabilitation, vocational rehabilitation workforce development, and job placement. RSA grants and scholarships cover tuition (not fees) and usually provide a small stipend to help with textbooks and expenses.
RSA grants require that scholarship recipients fulfill a post-graduation employment obligation or pay back the received support. The employment obligation entails working in a government or other not-for-profit program serving individuals with severe disabilities two years for each academic year support was received.
