The Tuition Support Program is supported by First Things First
and administered by the Smart Support program
at Southwest Human Development. Its goal is to increase the number of mental health professionals in Arizona
who have expertise in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health disturbances and disorders that
affect children in the 0 to 5 age range and who have the knowledge and skills to help families and early childhood
professionals in the community support the mental health and social-emotional development of young children.
The program has strict eligibility requirements that include an applicant having to be an Arizona resident;
having a license-eligible degree or currently enrolled in a license-eligible graduate
degree program; and be working in, or a student with aspirations to work in, the 0-5 mental health field in Arizona.
Eligibility is also stringent on previous award amounts received, available funds and the requested training’s curriculum.
