Access Scholarships and Training Funds through the Collaborative
The Collaborative is committed to providing financial assistance to support training within the children’s mental health field in Hennepin County. Funding is available for scholarships, training and sponsorships. Resources are available on a first come, first served basis throughout the year.
Three types of scholarships, training or learning have been prioritized in 2021:
- Scholarships to attend publicly announced children’s mental health conferences or trainings.
- Training grants (up to $1,000 each) for up to 10 community agencies that provide children’s mental health related trainings or workshops.
- Sponsorships (up to $1,000 each) will be available for up to three agencies, individuals (adult or youth), or providers to create or host plays, speeches, or public events that have clear children’s mental health focus or education goals.
Scholarships are available to individuals who fall into one or more of the following categories:
- Partial Scholarships (up to 75% of training cost). Employees, individuals, volunteers, or interns who work at nonprofit or for-profit agencies provided that the applicant is involved in the delivery of mental health support, programs or services to Hennepin County children and families. The agency may be located anywhere in the Greater Metro area (does not need to be located in Hennepin County).
- Full or Partial Scholarships (full cost up to $300 or partial cost up to 75% if more than $300). Parents, youth, grandparents, and other individuals who are participating in, or in need of, children’s mental health services and programs located within Hennepin County and in service to Hennepin County residents.
