Grants and Scholarships

The UHV School of Education, Health Professions & Human Development recently received a $2.54 million grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The grant is being used for student scholarships for underrepresented populations, such as minority students, students from low-income families or first-generation college students.

The scholarship covers tuition and fees for students pursuing a Master of Education in clinical mental health counseling.

To be eligible for the grant, students must:

  • Enroll as a full-time graduate student.
  • Complete three semesters of a practicum or internship in an integrated behavioral health care field placement located in a medically underserved community.
  • Finish the clinical mental health counseling program within two years.
