HRSA Scholarship




If you are interested in working with marginalized communities, explore our HRSA Scholarship, which promotes diversity of licensed counselors in under-served regions of the country.

This opportunity is generously funded by a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The grant will help fund Hood College’s Helping the Helper program, which is designed to support high-caliber students who want to make a difference in disenfranchised, underserved communities.
