Scholarships

WAMFT is proud to provide scholarships to our Student Members, which support the career growth for the next generation of our MFT community.


Receiving this scholarship is important because it helps meet my expenses.  It is also important because it comes from the members of the professional association that I hope to be a part of for years to come.  I’ll work hard to pay this forward.


“Financially, I am struggling because of a lack of resources and the relative inability of working during my two-year graduate program, which includes an unpaid internship.  Assistance is a blessing as I embark on the rest of my journey through graduate school.”


“It is an honor to be chosen for this scholarship.  And I am truly blessed to be a part of a group that values the next generation.  My classmates and I are so excited to enter this field, and your support makes it possible.  Thank you to all the members of WAMFT!”


“The scholarship funds are very practical, as they will assist me in buying books and a video camera that would allow me to more effectively facilitate my work at my internship site.  However, the money is also symbolic to me.  When I read that the scholarships had been personally donated by WAMFT members, I realized that receiving a scholarship would connect me in a very tangible way to the people with whom I hope to serve alongside as an empathetic, informed and caring professional.”
