Let's Make A Change

Helping those with mental health challenges requires treatment and care from a variety of healthcare professionals. The Dr. Steven R. Budoff Mental Health Educational Scholarship Fund's mission is to provide educational opportunities to those interested in pursuing any of the careers in the behavioral health field. 


The Fund also recognizes those facing mental health challenges themselves as an untapped talent pool, and provides scholarships that help elevate these individuals as contributors to our communities.


Here's who we are, what the scholarship Fund will look like, and how we make it happen.
