“I am very excited and thankful to be a recipient of the Melanie Merola O’Donnell Memorial Scholarship. I am impressed and energized by the mission of the Melanie Foundation and believe that Ms. O’Donnell’s values and work parallel my own ideals and career drives.

The scholarship will enable me to travel to present my current research at national conferences, to enroll in clinical training workshops to advance my therapy skills, and to purchase CBT manuals and workbooks to broaden my clinical knowledge. I am grateful to be a part of continuing Ms. O’Donnell’s legacy and to receive assistance in my pursuit of improving care for underserved populations in the mental health field.”
