During its 37-year history, the Gestalt Training Institute of Philadelphia (GTIP) has graduated over 300 trainees with less than a dozen of those trainees being of BIPOC. Between 2019 to 2024, GTIP has made a commitment to challenge this disparity in the following ways:
-offering free tuition to 7 trainees of the African Diaspora between the years of 2019-2024.
-starting the Gloria E. Ramos Latinx Scholarship.
Latinx applicants in the tri-state area who work as behavioral health providers are eligible to apply. Preference is given to pre-licensed professionals.
The goals of the GTIP Gloria E. Ramos Latinx Scholarship are to:
-Increase the number of Latinx Gestalt Therapy Practitioners within the GTIP community through training.
-Expose Latinx communities to the benefits of Gestalt Therapy Theory by training Latinx practitioners.
