LA-CAMFT Therapists of Color Grant Award: Grant Award Registration Open

The next cycle for the grant will begin on January 2, 2024. 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

  • $530 to be spent at the winner’s discretion.
  • Free admission to 3 LA-CAMFT workshops or networking events of the winner’s choosing, with the exception of the Law & Ethics Workshop.

The $530 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 purpose that the 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 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, who will also be contacted via email directly. Registration for the next award cycle will open on January 2, 2024, and will close on February 24, 2024. The drawing will take place on February 25, 2024.

The LA-CAMFT TOC Grant Committee
