We know that many mental health therapists experience inequitable employment and compensation that make it extremely challenging to afford advanced clinical training and professional development. There are others enduring financial hardship for a variety of reasons.
The Scaling Up Scholarship Program exists to remove financial barriers that prevent clinicians from accessing effective trainings that will increase their capacity to facilitate mental health and crisis interventions for their clients.
The Scholarship Fund provides partial scholarships to licensed mental health professionals. Priority is given to Black, Indigenous, other people of color (BIPOC), LGBTQ+, disabled and other minoritized clinicians.
The Scholarship Program typically has a waiting list. Potential recipients may experience waitlist times of up to 4 months or more, depending on contributions received. Scaling Up sponsors four (4) scholarships per month in addition to the scholarships awarded using donated money.
Scholarships are awarded in the order applications are received.
