Academy of Crisis Intervention Scholarship Program

The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, Inc. (ICISF) is “Helping Save the Heroes” by providing pre-incident education to address the mental health concerns of those who respond to disaster and crises. ICISF aims to promote and maintain standards in the specific field of crisis intervention. ICISF’s Academy of Crisis Intervention is in the forefront of delivering quality Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) training through a variety of educational opportunities geared specifically towards the individuals and communities we serve.

Always in the forefront of delivering quality CISM training, ICISF has recognized a need, and has established The Academy of Crisis Intervention Scholarship Fund for full and/or partial scholarships to assist individuals who are unable to attend ICISF training due to financial constraints.


We are able to provide these scholarships due to the generosity of our members, supporters, and sponsors.

The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation is a 501 (c)3 not for profit organization and all donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. Consult with your tax advisor for more information.

You can help first responders (firefighters, EMT's, police officers, and more) get scholarships so they can attend this valuable training. 

By donating to the Academy of Crisis Intervention Scholarship Fund, you are truly "Helping Save The Heroes"!
