The Chicago School Partners with National Military Family Association

New partnership formed to provide scholarships to eligible military spouses.

(LOS ANGELES) (OCTOBER 6, 2017)The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP), a leading nonprofit university devoted exclusively to psychology, and related behavioral health sciences, has partnered with the National Military Family Association (NMFA) to offer eligible NMFA military spouse members scholarships ranging from $2,500 to $16,500. Through this partnership, TCSPP aims to support NMFA’s goal to “help prepare military spouses for meaningful employment and to better contribute to their family’s financial security.”

The Chicago School will offer potential scholarships of $7,500 for Bachelor’s degrees ($2,500 for degree completion), $8,500 for Master’s degrees and $16,500 for doctoral degrees. These scholarships are exclusively for military spouses who register on the NMFA website. To apply or inquire about the above scholarships, please email [email protected].

Scholarships are distributed over the students’ terms/semesters and prospective students can attend all TCSPP campuses located in Chicago, Los Angeles, Irvine, San Diego, Washington, D.C., and Online, where more than 20 degrees are offered in the fields of psychology and behavioral health, including business psychology, forensic psychology, and counseling services.

“Our partnership with NMFA furthers our mission to have a diverse student population, and is unique in that it supports the spouses of military members who are eager to continue their education,” said TCSPP President Dr. Michele Nealon. “These scholarships will put many military spouses in a better position to help fill the gaps in mental and behavioral health care services.”

“Military spouses often put their own education and career goals on hold to support their family through deployments, frequent moves, and even a service member’s injury,” said NMFA Executive Director Joyce Raezer. “We are grateful that TCSPP recognizes these sacrifices, and because of their commitment, we are excited to see more military spouses enter the mental health field and make a difference in their communities.”
