Scholarships and Fellowships
CSWE provides a number of funding opportunities for students and faculty members. More information about each of those funding opportunities is below along with links to application information and staff contact.
Social Work Healthcare Education and Leadership Scholars (HEALS) aims to develop the next generation of healthcare social work leaders. This is accomplished by providing BSW and MSW students with scholarship funding and educational enhancements, so that they are well positioned to be an integral part of the healthcare delivery team; providing professional development and mentorship to field instructors and creating a network that fosters effectiveness across settings; and building the next generation of social work academic and practice leaders through doctoral and post-doctoral research and policy fellowships.
CSWE's Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) opportunities support the mission of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to reduce the effects of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities by increasing racial/ethnic minority individuals who are trained to work with underrepresented and underserved persons with or at risk for mental health and/or substance abuse disorders.
The CSWE Scholars Program is designed to provide both senior and junior scholars with the opportunity to work on research projects or programmatic initiatives of their choosing and in line with CSWE priorities. This Program is designed to provide senior scholars (faculty members) and junior scholars (such as doctoral students or individuals recently completing their doctoral dissertation) with the opportunity to work on projects and initiatives of interest to the scholar as well as to CSWE.
