Graduate Student Scholarships 2018

2018 NYSSCA Graduate Student Scholarship

To help future school counselors fulfill their educational goals, the New York State School Counselor Association awards scholarships to graduate students each year who are currently enrolled in a New York State accredited master’s-level school counseling program.
Scholarships are awarded based on students’ academic achievement, contributions to the field and commitment to the promotion of the ASCA/NYSSCA Comprehensive Model of School Counseling. The required letter of recommendation should be specific as to the candidate’s suitability for the award. The essay response to the following question is a critical part of the application for the NYSSCA Graduate Student Scholarship

“Given the transformation of the school counseling profession in recent years, and the emphasis in education on accountability, how can counselors demonstrate their commitment to student achievement and development through the application of the ASCA/NYSSCA Comprehensive Model of School Counseling?”

The New York State School Counselor Association (NYSSCA) supports school counselors’ efforts to help students focus on academic, social/emotional and career development so they achieve success in school and are prepared to lead fulfilling lives as responsible members of society. NYSSCA provides professional development, publications, research, and advocacy to professional school counselors in New York State.
NYSSCA will award three $1000 scholarships
