SCHOLARSHIP / FINANCIAL AID
Scholarships-Rehabilitation Service Administration Grant
The Clinical Rehabilitation and Counseling Program has a long-term training grant funded by the Rehabilitation Services Administration under the U.S. Department of Education. This grant provides for a limited number of scholarships (tuition and a stipend) for individuals who agree to work for the state-federal vocational rehabilitation program or a related program for two years for each year in which a scholarship is received. Priority recipients for scholarships are as follows: individuals with disabilities, individuals from minority groups, full-time students. Students must be fully admitted to the graduate program in order to be considered for a scholarship.
*There is a cost of education budget for each student and by Federal Regulations; the university cannot exceed this budget. It is imperative that each student notify the financial aid office if they are receiving additional funding once they have received their award letter. The scholarship award might affect your Federal Financial Aid and our office must adjust the financial aid award offer. This might include deleting an already awarded program or reducing the dollar amount offered.
Upon acceptance to the LSUHSC MHSRC programs, students will receive a packet of information from the School of Allied Health’s Student Affairs Office. This packet will include information on Financial Aid and Residence Hall options.
