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 and advanced certifications through Kase & CO.
Our Scholarship Fund was created to support BIPOC colleagues to advance in their practice of EMDR. Available scholarships include:
EMDR Basic Training: Full Scholarship – Two full scholarships are available to qualifying BIPOC clinicians for each Basic Training cohort we offer at Kase & CO.
- Valued at $1560
- 50 hours of education per training
- Includes all lectures and consultation
- Available for either live or virtual formats
- Trainees will need to purchase Francine Shapiro’s “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing” text and print their course training materials.
Upcoming Advanced Trainings and Application Deadlines
Scholarship applications may be sent in at any time but must be submitted at least one month prior to the training you are requesting a scholarship to attend. Applications received after this date will need to be resubmitted for the next available cohort.
