Detailed description of actual scholarship The AAMFT Minority Fellowship Program's objectives are to: Expand the delivery of culturally competent mental health and substance abuse services to ethnic minority communities and under served populations. Increase the number of doctoral level culturally competent Marriage and Family therapists committed to advancing the mental health interests of ethnic minority communities and under served populations Our goal is to do this by providing financial support and professional guidance to graduate students pursuing doctoral degrees in Marriage and Family therapy. Our mission consistent with the Surgeon General's Report on Mental Health and other federal initiatives to reduce health disparities is to increase the pool of talented, culturally competent doctoral-level researchers, teachers and practitioners dedicated to assisting ethnic minority communities and under served populations. Funded by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), AAMFT has created the Minority Fellowship Program to support the training of practitioners or practitioner/researchers in culturally competent mental health and substance abuse services, treatment and prevention. This fellowship program is open to at Marriage and Family Therapy doctoral students who are committed to research about and service to ethnic minority communities and under served populations. An MFP fellowship is more than a simple scholarship that only provides financial support. An MFP fellowship is a professional training appointment into a community of other students and professionals who hold similar professional interests. Indeed, the MFP provides stipends, or living allowances, to students who hold the fellowships. However, we also facilitate leadership development and provide professional guidance with the aim of deepening the skills sets and knowledge base of the fellows in areas related to minority mental health research and services.
