Pamela N. Griffin Scholarship Award
Would you like to attend the national AAMFT Conference in Wisconsin next year? Or perhaps this year’s CTAMFT Annual Conference: The New Brain Science of Connection?  Here’s how you can apply to receive either $500 for the national conference or full admission to this year’s CTAMFT conference!…

Pamela N. Griffin established a trust to award scholarships to MFT students entering the field of Marriage and Family Therapy.  The intent of the scholarship is to support students wishing to attend CTAMFT, AAMFT and other conferences.

The amount to be awarded will be $1,250 per year, and distributed in two ways:

  1. One (1) award of $500.00 for the AAMFT National Conference (or another MFT conference of applicant’s preference).
  2. Five (5) awards of $150 to one student member from each MFT program in CT (i.e., one student will be selected from each of the following programs: SCSU, UConn, University of Saint Joseph, CCSU and Fairfield University) to attend CTAMFT’s annual two-day conference.

To receive awarded funds, recipients must submit proof of conference attendance (i.e., proof of registration and attendance).

Application Criteria and Procedures:

  • Applicant must be a current MFT student in a Connecticut MFT program.
  • Applicant must be an AAMFT Student Member (must submit AAMFT ID# on application).
  • Applicant must have a G.P.A. of 3.0 or higher (must submit scan or photocopy of current transcript or written proof from Department Chair or Faculty Supervisor).
  • Applicant must complete Pamela N. Griffin Award Application Form.
  • Applicant must submit a brief essay (250 words max.) describing goals as a future MFT and how the conference will enhance that goal.
  • Applicant must receive a signature on the application form from their MFT Program Director or MFT faculty member.
  • Final award will be made upon proof of registration and attendance to Conference (local or national).

Selection Process:

  • The $500 award will be selected via a lottery, drawn at random by CTAMFT’s Board of Directors.
  • For each of the $150 scholarship awards, one student from each of the five MFT programs in CT will be selected by lottery, drawn at random by CTAMFT’s Board of Directors.

Submit applications electronically to manager@ctamft.org.
