Scholarships

Congratulations to Mira McCoy for receiving the 2019 MHA (Fall) Scholarship award of $5,000!

More scholarships are still available so please see pertinent dates below and get your applications in!

Students pursuing careers in the field of mental health and wellness are awarded scholarships annually, per semester. The following supporters have contributed to the establishment of this program that MHATC strives to carry forward with pride and intention:

The Patricia Pownder Connolly Memorial Scholarship
Rupert and Elizabeth Pownder established The Patricia Pownder Connolly Memorial Scholarship in memory of their daughter. This scholarship is designed for students pursuing a degree in the mental health field. Mental health related fields are defined as psychiatry, psychology, sociology, social work, counseling, psychiatric nursing, and rehabilitation counseling.

The Lillian Cooper Droke Memorial Scholarship
Thomas M. Droke established The Lillian Cooper Droke Memorial Scholarship in memory of his grandmother. This scholarship is awarded to a student who is enrolled in college or technical training and who has been diagnosed with a mental illness. Other students pursuing a career in the mental health field may also be considered if no eligible mental health consumer applies.

The Linda Lyons Memorial Scholarship
The Linda Lyons Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by the Mental Health America in memory of Linda Lyons, a former MHA board member, mental health professional, and mental health advocate. This scholarship is awarded to eligible students pursuing a career in mental health.

Exciting News! We’ve started awarding EVERY semester!

Applications are administered and awarded each year by the Mental Health America of Greater Tarrant County and a subsequent scholarship committee.
