NBCC Foundation brings the healing power of counseling to under-served or never served communities through funding efforts in two program areas: Scholarships and Community Capacity Building Grants. Annually, the NBCC Foundation Board determines priority areas, and the current priority underserved communities are military communities, rural communities, minority populations and communities implementing the Mental Health Facilitator program, and CCE programs that serve as predecessor programs for counseling degrees.
The scholarship program is integral to the NBCC Foundation’s mission to leverage the power of counseling by strategically focusing resources for positive change. The goal of the scholarship program is to increase the number of counselors in priority underserved communities.
