Our scholarships are generously funded by the Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy Foundation (NSGPF). Both the Foundation and NSGP are committed to the development of students, early career mental health professionals, and its members in need of financial support who have an interest in expanding their knowledge and skills in group psychotherapy.
Currently there are four scholarship funds. The Michelle McGrath LGBTQIA+ Scholarship is intended for clinicians and students who identify and/or work with that population. The Debora Carmichael Scholarship Fund for Working Parents is a new scholarship offered for those individuals who are working parents. The Walker Shields Scholarship Fund is another new fund for those clinicians who are passionate about group work. We also have the original General NSGP Scholarship that helps defer the costs of training.
Details and information about all our scholarships can be found here:
For those who qualify, scholarships help to defray the cost of the annual Conference in June and our Training Program which includes the Principles Course (6 sessions) and Modules 1 & 2 of the Experiential Group (12 weeks each).
Details about each of these training opportunities can be found on the respective pages - Annual Conference and Training Program. NSGP strongly believes in the power of investing in the future of professionals who commit to the endeavor of group work. This investment strengthens your clinical skills and enhances the field of group psychotherapy.
