GENEX Services Case Manager Scholarship

GENEX Services Case Manager Scholarship

GENEX Services Case Manager Scholarship, initiated in Fall 2015

GENEX, a case management company, based in Pennsylvania, awarded SDSU’s Rehabilitation Counseling Program $20,000 in scholarship funds to support graduate students. One of our former graduates and project staff, Mark Fillebrown, nominated our program to receive these funds. GENEX awards 5 universities annually. Mark now lives in upstate New York.

GENEX staff are very familiar with the work that rehabilitation counselors do and are very pleased to support our students, knowing the good work that they will do.
