Glenn Koons Scholarship: Applications Now Accepted

Glenn Koons
In October, the Mental Health Association in Pennsylvania (MHAPA) and the Pennsylvania Mental Health Consumers’ Association (PMHCA) announced a new scholarship in honor of Glenn Koons, a beloved Certified Peer Specialist who touched many lives before his untimely death. Glenn’s personality and skills led him to become a Certified Peer Specialist. In this role he helped guide people through their mental health recovery journeys. Whether at work or with friends, he brought hope and smiles to people.

MHAPA and PMHCA are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the scholarship. Application deadline is Feb. 15.  

The $1000 scholarship is awarded annually to a promising Pennsylvania candidate for Certified Peer Specialist training who demonstrates the ability to engage people, share life experiences in recovery, provide leadership and teach others these skills.

To apply, print and complete the application. If you have questions, please contact the PMHCA office at 1-800-887-6422.

Special thanks to the donors for helping make this scholarship a reality.
