Policy Practice in Field Education Initiative

The Policy Practice in Field Initiative was created to seed innovation and develop new models for an integrated approach to enhance the policy skill set of all social work students regardless of specialization. Initially funded by The Fund for Social Policy Education and Practice and the Casey Family Programs, this initiative is now generously funded by The New York Community Trust.

Funds provided to CSWE are re-granted to schools and programs of social work for field placement and community engagement experiences. Following a structured selection process, awardees are chosen to plan and/or implement innovative projects.
