Graduate aid and funding
The School of Social Work offers financial support for social work MSW and PhD students through training grants, fellowships, scholarships, and graduate assistantships.
Social work scholarships are awarded to students on the basis of need and merit, and are made possible through donations to the School of Social Work. Some awards require that recipients have special career interests, complete designated course work, or commit to working in specific areas or with identified target populations upon completion of their degrees. In addition, some awards to MSW students require that students accept specific field placements.
Financial aid decisions are made beginning in the spring and continue into the start of the academic year, depending on fund availability.
MSW training grants and fellowships
Training grants and fellowships are available for MSW students interested in preparing for work in a specific area of practice or with a targeted population. These fellowships often require specific coursework and field training, and some have post-graduation requirements.
