Martha Mattingly Scholarship

martha mattinglyThe Martha Mattingly Scholarship is awarded to support professional development and enhance leadership of early career Child and Youth Care Work professionals. Scholarship recipients may use the scholarship funds for a range of professional opportunities including:

  • Attending meetings of professional associations or other leadership events;
  • Attending national and international conferences relevant for Child and Youth Care Work professionals;
  • Priorities set by the committee for the current year.

Scholarships are available to Child and Youth Care Work practitioners in any country.  Funding may be used to attend events in any location. Typically a person can be granted a scholarship once.

Each year the Mattingly Scholarship Committee designates an amount of funding that will be awarded in that year.  In some instances only attendance at specific events will be funded.  In other years, scholarships will be made available to fund events based on applicants’ requests.
