CAMFT's Educational Foundation

The CAMFT Educational Foundation was formed to support and enhance the profession of marriage and family therapy. The Educational Foundation fulfills this mission by providing scholarships, grants, and other assistance to persons pursuing the profession or conducting research relevant to the practice of marriage and family therapists, and also by engaging in other programs to enhance and expand awareness of the profession.

One of the hallmarks of a life well lived is giving back to make it better than you found it. With generosity, a plot of land becomes a community garden; a dilapidated building becomes a food bank; and a mental health profession becomes more robust and diverse.

 

Since 1977, the CAMFT Educational Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, has awarded nearly $150,000 in scholarships and grants. Today, the need to create a more diverse mental health workforce has never been greater, and scholarships and grants help make the dream of licensure as a marriage and family therapist a reality for many.
