Next time you see a flyer for a training or conference, have an idea regarding a social need/problem you think you have a solution to, or identify an area of study you want to research, don’t just push the opportunity away. Instead, apply for a grant from the Schultz Foundation for Advancing Counseling - it could make an impact on your career and the lives of those you touch.  

And, remember, a financial donation of any amount helps to enable the Foundation to continue supporting mental health professionals and counseling graduate students for many years to come.
