Are you eligible?

BGSP offers the Career Advancement Scholarship to selected students entering BGSP’s M.A. program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling or One Year Program.  The scholarship helps people working at the Bachelor’s level in clinical human service agencies (such as hospitals, residential facilities, or in-home intervention programs) advance their career to earn a license-eligible Master’s in Mental Health Counseling.

Scholarship recipients are offered a 20% discount on course tuition, renewable each semester, as long as the student maintains good academic standing. Since BGSP’s tuition is already lower than many private colleges, this means an affordable career is in reach!

Applicants who have worked in a mental health agency for one year or more at the Bachelor’s level are eligible to apply. A limited number of Career Advancement Scholarships are available each year. Interested applicants must apply by December 15th for consideration in the Spring 2024 semester, and by July 15th for Fall 2024.
