MACP Students Receive Awards Through the MFT Stipend Program

MA in Clinical PsychologyGissela Rosiles, Natasha Quintero, and Karina Gonzalez from Antioch University Santa Barbara’s MA in Clinical Psychology program have been awarded $18,500 each through the California Educational MFT Stipend Program.

The MFT Stipend Program is one of several incentive programs funded through the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) in California that Masters in Clinical Psychology students can apply for each year. These programs promote the academic education and practicum training of students in the mental health disciplines within the principles and values espoused by the MHSA in addressing the statewide workforce need for mental health practitioners in underserved communities.

Each year students from schools across the state apply for the MFT State Stipend, and AUSB is happy to congratulate Gissela, Natasha, and Karina, who have distinguished themselves as therapists in training that are committed to serving their communities.

“Each of these students came in to the Masters in Clinical Psychology program with a desire to learn and a keen interest in all that the world of psychology has to offer,” said Mariela Marin, Core Faculty and Director of Clinical Training in the program. “The MACP program has been a meaningful stepping stone for each of these recipients as it has provided the comprehensive education, enriching field experience, and supportive community to launch their careers in the mental health field.”
