We are happy to announce the Mediation Center has received a $6,000 grant in support of our programs. We are most grateful for the continued support of the community-minded donors who made this possible.
Named in honor of longtime MCC mediator, volunteer, and supporter Judy Morton, this scholarship will cover 100% of the recipient’s fee for the Basic Mediation Skills course. The award will be bestowed annually to the student whose application best articulates an interest in mediation vis-a-vis his/her career or future pursuits. If you are interested in taking Basic Mediation Skills and would like to apply for the scholarship, please see the application guidelines below. Completed scholarship applications must be submitted at least 6 weeks before the start of the course, and the award recipient is notified 4 weeks before the start date.
Congratulations go to NeShara Gaston, recipient of the 2019 Judy Morton Scholarship!
