For applications to be considered, they must be postmarked no later than Friday, July 16, 2021. The scholarship winners will be announced by CAPT in late September.
CAPT will award up to 10 scholarships to help students with the cost of tuition, books and other expenses. This year, eight scholarships may be awarded for $750 each. Two additional scholarships may be awarded to the individuals whose applications are not only accurately completed, but whose signed statements are exceptionally inspiring and letters of recommendation are highly supportive. One top scholarship may be awarded in the amount of $1,500 and a runner-up awarded in the amount of $1,000.
To receive a scholarship, an individual must be enrolled and actively participating in a Psych Tech education program accredited or approved by the BVNPT. The recipient must also be a CAPT member, a relative of a CAPT member or someone residing in a CAPT member’s immediate household.
The scholarships are funded from a grant by the American Association of Psychiatric Technicians, which provides services to mental health workers in the 46 states that do not license Psych Techs.
