  • Inform your students about scholarship opportunities from the NBCC Foundation;
  • Offer a new resource to students or submit your own research to The Professional Counselor, recognized by the APEX Awards for Publication Excellence in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016;
  • Receive grant funds to assist in obtaining accreditation by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP)
  • Utilize opportunities provided by the NBCC Foundation, including symposia, webinars, and volunteer opportunities.
