About the Fellowship

Minority Fellowship Program-Youth for Master’s Students

The Now Is the Time: MFP-Youth Program, from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), offers fellowships to direct practice-focused master’s-level students who are committed to providing mental health services to at-risk children and youths (adolescents and young adults aged 16–25) in underserved minority communities.

The purpose of the program is to reduce health disparities and improve health-care outcomes of racially and ethnically diverse populations by increasing the number of culturally competent behavioral health professionals available to underserved populations with or at risk for mental health disorders in the public and private nonprofit sectors.

Funds for the program are provided by Center for Mental Health Services in SAMHSA.
