Oregon Society of Clinical Hypnosis: BIPOC Training Scholarship

We believe everyone should have a fair opportunity to train in and provide clinical hypnosis. Representation matters!  To support BIPOC clinicians training in this valuable therapeutic approach, the Oregon Society of Clinical Hypnosis (OSCH) offers a scholarship to support BIPOC clinicians and graduate students to attend hypnosis training.

Full scholarships will be made available every year for our annual February  Level I Fundamentals in Hypnosis Course, and our annual Level II training course (which can be attended once Level I is completed). These trainings provide the essentials for practicing clinical hypnosis. They conform to the training standards established by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH). The Oregon Society (OSCH) is a component of ASCH.

A one-year membership to OSCH will also be awarded to scholarship recipients.

In case of inadequate enrollment numbers for a training to proceed, a scholarship recipient may be able to roll their scholarship over to the next planned course of the same type. OSCH may offer additional courses however there may or may not be additional scholarships awarded. 

Who can Apply?

Any BIPOC licensed health care or mental health care professional, or current resident, intern, or graduate student in a health care program, is invited to apply for the scholarship. Should an applicant not win a scholarship, they are still welcome to attend at the early bird price indicated for the training.

How to Apply?  

Write a statement (e.g. 1-3 paragraphs) about why you are interested to train in hypnosis. Email your essay to info@oregonhypnosis.org to the attention of the course director with your name, contact information, health care profession/credentials, location of practice, and proof of enrollment if you are a current graduate student. We will contact you to confirm receipt of your application.  Applications do not automatically carry over and must be resubmitted each year for consideration.
