LA-CAMFT Therapists of Color Grant Award
& June 2022 Awardees

On June 26, 2022, the most recent awardees of the LA-CAMFT TOC GRANT AWARD were randomly selected.  They are Marica Thomas and Yulia Fox. Each will receive a check for $500, a free year of LA-CAMFT membership, and free admission to 3 LA-CAMFT workshops or networking events.

The next cycle for the grant award will begin on September 7, 2022.  It is limited to members of LA-CAMFT, and the award is limited to once per calendar year.

Description of Grant Stipend

Every 4 months (3x per year), a grant award will be offered to two applicants who meet the following criteria: (1) must be a current LA-CAMFT member, (2) identify as a Therapist of Color, and (3) must be either an Associate, Trainee, or Student still in graduate school.

Grant winners will receive

  • $500 to be spent at the winner’s discretion
  • Free year of LA-CAMFT membership
  • Free admission to 3 LA-CAMFT workshops or networking events of the winner’s choosing with the exception of the Law & Ethics Workshop.

The $500 award can be used at the recipient’s discretion based on their own individual needs (whether it be for BBS fees, testing materials, memberships, rent, groceries, etc.). Confirmation for the what money is used will not be required.

Application and Selection Process

Interested members can complete the application on the LA-CAMFT website. The selection process entails using a Randomized Generator of the applicants who met the full criteria and complete the application online in order to take out human bias and decrease activation of one's trauma history. The drawing will be recorded via Zoom and posted onto social media along with an announcement naming the grant winners, whom will also be contacted via email directly. Registration for the next award cycle will open on September 7, 2022, and will close on November 5, 2022. The drawing will take place on November 6, 2022.
