The AAMFT Minority Fellowship Program’s objective is to expand the delivery of culturally competent mental health and substance abuse services to underserved minority populations, and to increase the number of doctoral level culturally competent ethnic minority Marriage and Family therapists. Our goal is to do this by providing financial support and professional guidance to ethnic minority graduate students pursuing doctoral degrees in Marriage and Family therapy. Our mission-consistent with the Surgeon General’s Report on Mental Health and other federal initiatives to reduce health disparities-is to increase the pool of talented, culturally competent doctoral-level researchers, teachers and practitioners dedicated to assisting underserved minorities.
The Minority Fellowship Program provides an $18,700.00 stipend per student for its Non-ABD Fellowship to be used for all related costs of doctoral program attendance and training, which must be renewed annually.
Application deadline is commonly in March. Visit funder website for more information.
