The Grants are:

· 2 for $500: These two funded research grants are designed to recognize, honor and support individuals who are seeking to complete a comprehensive research study related to the provision of professional counseling to college student populations and\or to the mental health professionals who provide them. These funded research grants provide a cash award of up to $500.00 each for two researchers. One of these investigations will include counseling at community, vocational, and technical institutions, while the other may focus on community colleges or 4 year colleges and universities.
