CAPT is now accepting applications for its 2015 Anthony Myers Memorial Scholarship Program

CAPT is now accepting applications for the eleventh round of scholarships it will award to students enrolled in Psych Tech education programs.

Last year the CAPT Board of Directors voted to rename the union’s annual scholarship program the Anthony Myers Memorial Scholarship Program in honor of CAPT’s previous state president who passed away from cancer. The Board agreed that it was only fitting to rename the program after Tony, who was not only instrumental in establishing the scholarship program, but dedicated to the education of Psych Techs and advancement of the profession. Tony was first elected as state president in 2000. He continued to be re-elected and held office through 2013. Download flier. Download Application.
