Global scholarship awarded to Citadel Graduate College student
Moncks Corner resident Angela Robinson one of three recipients
CHARLESTON, S.C. — A student attending The Citadel Graduate College has earned a National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) scholarship. Angela Robinson, of Moncks Corner, S.C., was recently selected as one of three recipients of the NBCC’s 2013 Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) scholarship. Robinson and the others will each receive $5,000 to support their counseling education and to recognize their commitment to providing career counseling and guidance.
The goal of the GCDF scholarship program is to increase the number of counselors providing quality career guidance and facilitation. The GCDF scholarship program contributes to the Foundation’s mission to leverage the power of counseling by strategically focusing resources for positive change.
According to the NBCC foundation, the Board of Trustees was impressed with the high caliber of applicants from across the country and around the world. The scholarship recipients are Ileana Luminita Balasoiu, of Bucharest, Romania; Angela Robinson, of Moncks Corner, South Carolina; and Madalina Zaharia, of Bucharest, Romania.
Robinson is pursuing a master’s degree in secondary school counseling at The Citadel Graduate College. She received her B.A. in English from the University of South Carolina and her M.S. in English from the State University of New York at New Paltz. As a teacher, she obtained the GCDF credential in 2007 in order to provide meaningful assistance to students in preparation for life after high school.
Balasoiu received her undergraduate degree in educational sciences at the University of Bucharest. She is continuing her studies by pursuing a master’s degree in school counseling and career development, also at the University of Bucharest, where she is enrolled in the GCDF training program. Zaharia received her bachelor’s degree in commerce and master’s degree in marketing and business communication from the Bucharest University of Economic Studies. She is currently pursuing a master’s degree in school counseling and career development at the University of Bucharest, where she is also enrolled in the GCDF training program.
In early 2014, the Foundation will award 15 military, minority and rural scholarships to increase the number of counselors serving these priority areas.
