Two PMHC Students Receive NBCC Fellowships
The NBCC Foundation has announced the 2020 fellowship recipients for the National Board for Certified Counselors Minority Fellowship Program (MFP), and the graduate school is pleased to report that Claire Tam, PMHC ’22 and Tiran (Boyce) Sahar PMHC-A ’22 are among the 91 recipients.
The goals of the program are to strengthen the infrastructure that engages diverse individuals in counseling and increase the number of professional counselors providing effective, culturally competent services to underserved and never-served populations. Each fellow will receive funds to support their education as well as training, mentorship, and professional development services.
The NBCC MFP is made possible by a grant awarded to the NBCC Foundation by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and the NBCC Foundation also collaborates with NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, to administer the addictions counseling fellowship program.
