Duquesne Student Selected for National Minority Fellowship Program

A Duquesne University student is among only 22 nationwide selected for the 2014 National Board for Certified Counselors Minority Fellowship Program.

Doctoral student Carlos Golfetto, a native of Brazil who is enrolled in the School of Education's counselor education program, was chosen from among 80 applicants for this honor.

The goal of the fellowship program is to strengthen the infrastructure that engages diverse individuals in counseling and to increase the number of professional counselors providing effective, culturally competent services to underserved minority populations.

The organization will distribute $440,000 to support the education and facilitate the service of the 22 fellows through a grant awarded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
