NASP-ERT Minority Scholarship Program

The NASP-ERT MSP was established in 1995 to ease financial barriers facing some minority graduate students embarking on a Specialist Degree (or equivalent) in School Psychology.

  • One important goal of the Program is for each scholar receiving the award to enter the school community as a practicing school psychologist following graduation.
  • The award is announced at the NASP Annual Convention. Funding may begin in the immediate Fall term after the announcement.
  • The Program annually awards a minimum of one $5,000 scholarship to a chosen minority graduate student. In 2010, four $5,000 awards were funded (http://www.nasponline.org/about_nasp/2009msprecipients.aspx).
  • The ability to fund this Program is a direct result of the philanthropy of individual and corporate donors.
