Healthcare Scholarship: Consuelo W. Gosnell Memorial Scholarship

Overview of the Consuelo W. Gosnell Memorial MSW Scholarship

The NASW Foundation awards the annual Consuelo W. Gosnell Memorial MSW Scholarship to master’s degree candidates in social work who demonstrate exceptional commitment to working with American Indian/Alaska Native and Hispanic/Latino populations, or in public and voluntary nonprofit agency settings. The scholarship is named after Consuelo Gosnell, a social work practitioner born in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and a champion of civil and human rights. The scholarship is meant to reward and support students who carry on Ms. Gosnell’s legacy.

As all scholarships are funded through private donations and from the projected annual earnings to the dedicated scholarship fund, the amount awarded each year may vary. Up to 10 scholarships of $4,000 will be awarded for the 2014-2015 academic year.

To qualify for the award, applicants must be NASW members and have been accepted into an accredited MSW (Master’s in Social Work) program. All applicants must have a grade point average of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale). To be eligible for the award, you must also be in good academic standing.

All applications must be submitted by March 5th, as of 2014. However, the precise application deadlines may vary slightly from year to year; therefore, it is advisable to consult with the NASW Foundation website prior to applying. On the website, you can also find the application form. This form must be submitted together with a biographical essay, a statement of academic merit and financial need for the award, two letters of reference, an official copy of your transcript, and a signed release of your provided information.

The biographical essay must be two pages, double-spaced. In the essay, you must address your career aspirations, your personal interests, and all work, volunteer and academic experience relevant to the aims of the scholarship. Alongside the letters of reference, you must provide the contact information for both letter-writers. You may provide letters from professors, from leaders of relevant groups with which you have experience, employers or supervisors, etc. No references may be submitted from clients or family members.

Prior recipients of the scholarship award may apply to renew their funding, provided that they continue to meet all of the original criteria. Applicants wishing to renew their scholarship must submit, among their two letters of reference, a letter from their academic advisor. Scholarship renewal is only available for a second year of study.
