CASC Emeriti Foundation Scholarship Program

The California Association of School Counselors (CASC) Emeriti Foundation was founded in 2015 to encourage talented and innovative students to pursue leadership roles in the field of School Counseling. The CASC Emeriti Foundation is looking to award students who show a propensity toward leadership in the School Counseling field.

    1. addressing your personal experiences that led you to the field of School Counseling
    2. describing your leadership experience in the field of School Counseling, and
    3. listing any extracurricular activities or community volunteering experience(s) that pertain to the field of School Counseling.
Applications are judged based on the completed application, the quality of the essay, the submission of transcripts and three letters of recommendation. All documents must be submitted together in one file.
