School Counseling
Thank you for your interest in contacting us at the Evidence-Based School Counseling Conference (EBSCC).
Often, people are seeking information that is either on the website (e.g. program schedule) or that will be posted to the website when announced (e.g. Request for Proposals). We have included a list of Frequently Asked Questions and their answers below. If none of these addresses your question, please email us at and we will return your email as soon as possible.

When is the Requests for Proposals (RFP) and how do I submit a session proposal to the EBSCC?

The RFP is usually announced in late summer or early fall. When the RFP is announced there will be a new link to a page with additional information at the top of the EBSCC website and on the homepage. Once the RFP window has closed, the link will be removed until the following year’s RFP.

What is Research Day? Should I attend?

Please see the 2019 Schedule page. On the 2019 Schedule page select “Research Day” to see examples of the types of workshops offered during the Research Day.

The Research Day is offered to assist those interested in research in building impactful, practical research that contributes to the school counseling profession.

Often, doctoral students and junior faculty in school counselor education find this day particularly empowering in equipping them with the skills needed to conceptualize how to apply their passion areas to create a research agenda and to gain the skills needed to begin fulfilling that research agenda.

Opportunities for mentoring and networking with other researchers and educators are built into the Research Day schedule.
