The NBCC Foundation is pleased to announce the International Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) scholarships. These scholarships are made possible by generous corporate support from the Center for Credentialing & Education (CCE).
The goal of this scholarship program is to increase the number of available professional counselors providing quality career development services. In doing so, the GCDF scholarship program plays an important role in the Foundation’s mission to leverage the power of counseling by strategically focusing resources for positive change.
Two international scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each are available.
Eligibility requirements include the following:
- Must either hold an active GCDF credential in good standing and be enrolled in an advanced education program in counseling or be a student currently enrolled in both a GCDF training program and a post-bachelor’s counseling program, as appropriate to their country.
- Must commit to providing career counseling services for two years.
For the 2021 application period, priority consideration will be given to applicants who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic due to financial strains, unemployment or underemployment. Please address these factors in your personal statement, if applicable.
The application opens May 15, 2021, and the deadline is July 31, 2021.
Scholarship awardees will be announced by the end of October 2021.
CCE provides the funding for these awards, which the Foundation administers on CCE’s behalf.
