Scholars-in-Residence Program

The Scholars-in-Residence program will offer two professionals an opportunity to gain practical experience in activities, special assignments, and/or research projects that support federal, state, and community-based programs, policies, and best practices in various counseling settings: Schools, Hospitals and Community Agencies.

Two Scholars-in-Residence will be selected annually using the following guidelines. Scholars will be compensated as stated below.

  • The first position will be awarded to a practicing counselor.
  • The second position will be awarded to a graduate student who has completed a minimum of 30 credit hours in a regionally accredited counseling degree program.
  • Both interns will serve for one full year with the ACA Center for Counseling Practice, Policy, and Research.
  • Both interns will work 10 hours per week.

Both interns will be provided a stipend: $10,000 for the practicing counselor and $7,500 for the graduate student.

Applications open in September 2014.
