About the Scholarship

The DBT-Linehan Board of Certification is pleased to announce the availability of The Clinician Certification Scholarship Fund. This fund was initiated to increase access to clinician certification and to help address financial barriers which could interfere with prospective individuals becoming DBT-LBC certified. The scholarship is particularly seeking to fund individuals who are serving low income, disenfranchised or marginalized individuals. The eligible awardees receive a $270 scholarship towards the Clinician Certification fees, specifically the Work Product Demonstration portion. Individuals must pay the Application fee and Exam fees themselves. The Scholarship committee is intent on increasing community access to DBT-LBC Certified individuals and further increasing knowledge around the importance of certification. Efforts are underway to add to and grow the current level of funding in the Clinician Certification Scholarship Fund to sustain scholarship availability for years to come.

We encourage individuals to become certified in DBT and hope that the availability of scholarship assistance helps interested programs be able to pursue this valuable certification. Please check out the website for more information and feel free to Contact Us via the website with any questions. Thanks for your dedication!
