The Wingspan Project is partnering with Live Oak, Inc. to offer the Valuing Difference Awards. Our collaboration builds on the aligned beliefs and common history shared by our two organizations. This year, we will be offering one Graduate Student Award for $1000 and one Community Activist/Achievement Award for $1000. The key elements of our beliefs that drive this program are:
The Wingspan Project:

One graduate student will be selected for an award in the amount of $1000.
Students currently enrolled or about to begin graduate programs in any of the following disciplines: Social Work, Clinical Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy, Art Therapy, Dance/Movement Therapy, Psychology, or a related field. The intention of this award is to encourage and support new clinicians who are aligned with the values described above and plan to implement them in their practice.
Community Activism and Achievement Award
One community activist will be selected for an award in the amount of $1000.
Persons actively engaged in community activism, organizing, advocacy, or support. The intention of this award is to encourage and support activists, organizers, advocates, and other support people who are aligned with the values described above and plan to implement them in their work.
