CSPP M.A. student, Scott Osthus, is the 2013 recipient of the Melissa Sullivan Award

The Counseling and Student Personnel Psychology program is pleased to announce Scott Osthus, an M.A. student in CSPP, is the 2013 recipient of the Melissa Sullivan Award.

The Melissa Sullivan Endowed Internship/Practicum with Children & Families has been established to honor Melissa Sullivan, a CSPP student who graduated with her M.A. degree in 2001. She died unexpectedly in December 2001. The Sullivan family established the endowment in honor of Melissa and to encourage the training of counseling students to work with children and families. The student selected will receive $10,000 during the 2013-2014 academic year.

Over the past decade the Melissa Sullivan Endowed Internship/Practicum with Children & Families has been awarded to six different CSPP students in Counseling. Those students have now graduated and are providing valuable mental health and school counseling services to Minnesota children, adolescents and their families.
