The Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy Foundation is pleased to continue to fund the Anne Alonso Award Fund. 

Our awards 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.

After you register for a course or conference, if you would like to apply for an award, follow the steps below. If you receive an award, the amount will be deducted from your invoice and the balance due is your responsibility to pay promptly.  Awards are given on a funds-available basis. 

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Demonstrate the need for financial assistance to attend
  • Express a passion for group psychotherapy
  • Deliver a completed and strong application
  • Have an interest and willingness to invest in NSGP and its mission
  • Show how attending a training program or the conference will provide you with knowledge, skills, and contacts that will benefit your professional community

For those who qualify, awards 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.
