The NMFP-AC has implemented a rolling application period for the 2017-2018 academic year. After thorough review, fellowships will be awarded to outstanding applicants on a first come, first served basis. Please note that funds are limited, so be sure to apply early before they run out.
If the counseling program is at an accredited institution of higher education, and the program has an addiction counseling specialization or track that can be verified, your program is eligible. Applicants will be required to provide a hyperlink to the university webpage that describes the addiction track.
For the NMFP-AC, a concentration/track/emphasis in addiction/substance use disorders includes:
1. No less than twelve academic credits from addiction-specific graduate level courses. These courses should consist of content that includes Theories of Addiction, Assessment and Diagnosis, Counseling (Individual, Families and Groups), Treatment Planning and Relapse Prevention, Pharmacology and Physiology.
2. A supervised clinical internship that is addiction specific; if the internship is not addiction-specific an estimate of the addiction caseload will need to be stipulated.
Applicants will be required to provide a hyperlink to the university webpage that describes the addiction track.
The NMFP-AC is exclusively for students enrolled full-time in an addiction Master’s degree program or a Master’s degree with an addiction concentration. The program you describe does not meet these eligibility requirements.
It is not necessary to be licensed or certified as an Addiction/Substance Use Disorder Counselor to apply for the NMFP-AC.
This program is intended for individuals who are enrolled in a Master’s Degree program for the first time.
In the NMFP-AC rolling application process, once your application has been screened and determined to be complete and meet eligibility requirements, it then will be reviewed and scored. This process will take several weeks. You will be notified as soon as possible of the outcome of your application.
Fellowship stipends are awarded on behalf of the student to the College or University to pay for tuition and fees. Additional benefits of the fellowship are described here.
Yes, your agreement with the NAADAC Minority Fellowship Program for Addiction Counselors is to complete all of the expected commitments. If you cannot complete the commitments, you will be responsible for paying back any funds you have used.
