Scholarships for Graduate Students in Counseling
Gregory P. Calimeris Scholarship
This scholarship is in memory of Gregory Calimeris, a student in the graduate counseling program at the time of his premature death in 2014. At that time, Greg was working at Spring Hill, a private residence treatment facility in New Hampshire. As such, the staff at Spring Hill wanted to honor Greg by offering financial assistance to one student in JSC’s graduate counseling program.

- Acceptance into the program with a minimum 3.0 GPA
- Demonstrated financial need
- Addiction or mental health treatment track (as opposed to school counseling)
- Enrolled full time
Award: Full tuition, renewable for multiple years, so long as the student continues to:
- Maintain a minimum 3.5 GPA
- Demonstrate continued financial need
- Continue on the addiction or mental health treatment track
- Maintain full-time enrollment
