The Fordham Graduate School of Education is pleased to announce that counseling psychology doctoral student James Park has been awarded the prestigious F. Edward Hébert Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship. The scholarship will fund Park’s full tuition and fees for the last two years of his didactic training in the GSE’s counseling psychology PhD program. In addition, he will receive a $2,500 monthly stipend during the nine-month academic year and full active duty pay during the three summer months.
“James is an outstanding student and I heartily congratulate him for earning this scholarship award,” commented Jennie Park-Taylor, Counseling Psychology Associate Professor and Director of Training. “I look forward to hearing more about his contributions to counseling psychology in the future.”
As a scholarship recipient, Park is required to fulfill a three-year active duty service commitment, will have the opportunity to complete his internship at one of the four Army medical centers, and will be able to gain short-term clinical experience at various Army training centers during the summer months.
“Receiving this scholarship is an excellent opportunity to integrate my civilian education with my desire to support service members,” noted Park. “The Army has played a pivotal part in my professional and personal growth, and I want to continue to give back to the organization I proudly serve. Finally, I am grateful to my fiancé, friends, family, and the GSE counseling psychology faculty, particularly Dr. Jennie Park-Taylor, for their unwavering support.”
