Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Grants

Two $7500 grants are available for students who matriculate in 2024 into the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Track of the Psychoanalytic Center of the Carolinas (PCC). These funds can be used for any aspect of training in the PCC (course tuition, supervision, and/or personal treatment).

These one-time grants are not reimbursement grants but outright gifts. Dispersal of funds will be initiated when the awarded student enrolls in their first semester of classes as a matriculated student and can be used to cover the cost of tuition, supervision, and treatment. Tuition funds will be deducted prior to the dispersal of the remaining funds. Funds will be dispersed on a quarterly basis and will be accounted for with monthly expense reports submitted to the PCC.

Any funds remaining in the grant will be returned to the PCC should the recipient leave the program mid-year.
