Counseling graduate student awarded NBCC Foundation Scholarship

Rachel Pellegrino May 13, 2021

Waynesburg University graduate student Charles Stoddard was recognized by the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) Foundation as a 2020 Military Scholar.

The NBCC Foundation awards financial support to master’s-level counseling students who are committed to serving their communities for at least two years post-graduation.

This year, the foundation awarded six $8,000 military scholarships, five $8,000 rural scholarships and one research scholarship.

Stoddard, whose concentration is military mental health counseling, is Waynesburg’s third fellow to be chosen from the University’s Master of Arts in Counseling program, since 2018.

Waynesburg University’s Master of Arts in Counseling program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) of the American Counseling Association (ACA). The program prepares graduates like Stoddard with the confidence and skills they need to work as professionally licensed counselors.

As a 2020 NBCC Foundation scholar, Stoddard will receive education funding, as well as training, mentorship and professional development services.
