Hennepin County CMHC Scholarship Awarding Criteria for 2020
Updated June 2020
The CMHC mission is to provide a forum for a diverse and representative group of system stakeholders to influence the development and ongoing operation of an accessible and effective children’s mental health service system within Hennepin County. The CMHC promotes innovative service development and continuous quality improvement in the children’s mental health system by embracing the system of care principles and available research on children’s mental health services. Our collective vision is to ensure that Hennepin County has a comprehensive, integrated and culturally responsive children’s mental health service system that meets the mental health needs of Hennepin County children, youth and their families in the least restrictive and most appropriate setting.
While the CHMC does not provide any direct services to children or families, it is committed to providing financial assistance to support training within the field. A total of $18,000 is available in 2020 for scholarships, training and sponsorships. Resources are available on a first come, first served basis throughout the year. Funds not awarded within the fiscal year of January 1 – December 31 will not be carried over to the next year’s budget.
