Scholarship Fund for BIPOC Clinicians

At Kase & CO, we recognize that systemic racism has created many social barriers for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), including a lack of equity in education and certification. As an anti-racist company, we aim to make a difference in our area of practice. That’s why we offer annual scholarships to BIPOC mental health professionals for training through Kase & CO. The Scholarship Fund For BIPOC Clinicians is only offered for EMDR Basic Training.

BIPOC Scholarship at Kase & CO

EMDR Basic Training: Full ScholarshipTwo full scholarships are available to qualifying BIPOC clinicians for each scholarship round.

 The scholarship is valued at $1680 each, including the 50 hours per training, covering all essential lectures, practicum, and consultation sessions. However, trainees are required to purchase Francine Shapiro’s “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing” text and print their course training materials separately.

This initiative reflects our commitment to fostering diversity and inclusivity within the field of mental health, ensuring equitable access to essential training resources.

Scholarship Rounds

The BIPOC Scholarship at Kase & CO is offered per scholarship round for EMDR Basic Training. Applicants may apply to each round when the session is open. Each round will accept 25 applicants until the end of the session date. The scholarship round will close if all 25 spots are filled or by the deadline date for the scholarship round. Scholarship winners can apply to any of the cohorts listed in the scholarship round. Applicants must be U.S. Residents, and you must identify as a BIPOC Clinician. Applicants who do not identify as BIPOC Clinicians will immediately be disqualified.
