Rehabilitation Service Administration Long-Term Training Grant

Auburn University received Rehabilitation Service Administration (RSA) Long-Term Training grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Awarded scholars will be provided with one year of funding (Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters during the first-year or second-year of the program) to 11 scholarships will be available to fund students each year. The RSA scholarships cover tuition and tuition related costs. Scholarships do not cover all costs of attendance at Auburn University. RSA Scholarship funding has eligibility criteria and is a separate competitive application process. Students must apply and be accepted to the Master of Education in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling program at Auburn University. They must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and be in good standing with all other program requirements (e.g., Residency Training). A scholarship application is required, in addition to transcripts and letters of recommendation. Scholarships will be awarded to the most competitive applicants.

RSA scholars must complete their required 600-hour internship at a state vocational rehabilitation agency. Also, they must be in good standing with the program and have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher to remain eligible.

RSA expects two years of payback working in qualified employment for every year of funding a scholar accepts. If RSA scholars receive one year of funding at Auburn University, they must work as a rehabilitation counselor in qualified employment for two years to satisfy their obligation to RSA.

Please contact Dr. Jill Meyer if you have any questions about scholarships.
