Each year, we award one Cynthia Lucero Scholarship to a deserving student who exhibits a strong dedication and commitment to the delivery of human services to the Latino community. The award is $15,000 per year for a maximum of four years. The Lucero Latino Mental Health Program (LMHP) owes its inspiration to the work of the late Cynthia Lucero, PsyD, a William James College graduate whose career, in part, was devoted to addressing the needs of Spanish-speaking people.
Applicants are accepted from students planning to enroll in one of our graduate programs . You must be eligible to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and be enrolled full-time (as defined by your program) to be considered for institutional assistance.
Awards are renewable annually, subject to continued satisfactory academic progress, fulfillment of Lucero Scholar responsibilities (described below), and evidence of financial need as determined by the results of the FAFSA.
A LMHP Lucero Scholar Award selection committee will be appointed in the fall semester. The committee will include: LMHP faculty, staff, and a student representative.
Group decision should be made by committee shortly after completion of all admission interviews and before admissions' offers are made.
