Rehabilitation counseling is a profession that holistically applies counseling skills to assist individuals with psychiatric, developmental, cognitive, emotional, or physical disabilities to achieve their maximum level of independence, integration, and participation in the community and the world of work. The RCP program is CORE accredited and is currently being evaluated for CACREP accreditation. The department also offers an abundance of financial aid to students, with 100% of the graduating class receiving some form of financial assistance. If you are interested in applying, application materials and more information about admission can be found online at: http://gradschool.unc.edu.  Deadline for fall admission is May 12, 2015."

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) offers funding to students who demonstrate an interest in the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology and who enhance the diversity of science. The deadline to apply is May 18, 2015.
