NAADAC Offers Minority Fellowship Program for Addiction Counselors
March 10th, 2015/
NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, is offering a Minority Fellowship Program for Addiction Counselors. The NAADAC Minority Fellowship Program for Addiction Counselors (NMFP-AC) is offered for Master’s Level students.
The program is a federally funded program administered by NAADAC in conjunction with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment. The NMFP-AC will increase the number of culturally competent Master’s Level addiction counselors available to serve underserved and minority populations and transition-age youth (ages 16-25). It will provide tuition stipends, training, education, and professional guidance to students in the final year of an accredited Master’s program in addiction/substance use disorder counseling.
NMFP-AC fellows will be selected through a rigorous application and evaluation process. All applications and all supporting materials and documents must be submitted to NAADAC by March 15, 2015.
“This program will be a great opportunity for qualified students who have a strong ambition to complete their masters in addiction/substance use disorder counseling,” said NAADAC Executive Director Cynthia Moreno Tuohy.
