Program Goals

The goal of the Maxie Collier Scholars Program is to educate and recruit more African- American professionals into public mental health and to address the shortage of trained clinicians available to serve seriously emotionally disturbed children, adolescents, and their families.

Maxie Collier Scholars receive an enriched, career focused, academic background; financial support; graduate school preparation; internship experience; access to a network of career placement resources; and financial resources which encourage and support their educational advancement.
