2015 NYSSCA Graduate Student Scholarship application deadline approaching


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 and NYS Learning Standards. 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 evolution 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 NYS Common Core & other Learning Standards and the ASCA/NYSSCA Comprehensive Model?"

The New York State School Counselor Association 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.
