Central Florida Association for Marriage & Family Therapy (CFAMFT) is proud to announce this year’s invitation to high achieving graduate students currently enrolled in a Master’s level counseling program.

The Generation-2-Generation Student Scholarship: Nurturing Professional Excellence award was named for Gery J. Woltering to memorialize his legacy of personal warmth and professional mentoring. His legacy continues through this scholarship to promote CFAMFT’s passionate interest in and firm commitment to honoring the past by encouraging the future of Marriage & Family Therapy.

Scholarship applicants must be enrolled in a full-time graduate program in marriage & family therapy or mental health counseling that uses a systemic orientation and therapeutic approach. The essay needs to reflect this therapeutic approach in response to the prompt: Write a letter to your legislative representative advocating for why funding is important for marriage & family therapy. Include how you would contribute to the betterment of the mental health profession and the societal impact as a marriage & family therapist.

Submissions are reviewed by a committee of CFAMFT members and one entry will be judged the winner of the $500 award.

A previous Distinguished Service Award recipient will present the Generation-2-Generation Scholarship award to the scholarship winner. The student honoree will be recognized in person and presented to the larger CFAMFT audience and their student peers at the CFAMFT annual Holiday Breakfast event: Thursday, December 6, 2018 at 8:30am.

Qualified applicants must be CFAMFT members in good standing. Annual membership is available for graduate students for a $25 fee and can be submitted via the website at www.cfamft.org.
