At Attentive Behavior Care we understand the overwhelming challenge of financing a college or graduate school education. Tuition rates are on the rise and it’s becoming that much harder for students and their parents to afford. Although we can’t alleviate the burden completely, we do want to help.
We firmly believe that everyone – no matter their background or socioeconomic standing – deserves an opportunity to go to college and graduate school without going into debt.
With this in mind, Attentive Behavior Care is proud to help defray the rising costs of higher education. We are offering any current college or graduate school student who understands what it means to accept responsibility to improve the mental health community the opportunity to earn a $1,000 merit-based scholarship.
